Pioneering Research Development and Education in Microsurgery
In 1973 the Microsearch Foundation of Australia was formed to promote research and training in microsurgery - the joining of very small blood vessels, nerves and tissues with the aid of an operating microscope.
In 2006, Microsearch became a Division of Sydney Medical School Foundation, the University of Sydney, and moved to state-of-the-art laboratories specialising in microsurgical research and training, together with gene therapy facilities and a tissue culture area.
on 11 November 2014 the Microsearch Foundation of Australia became the Microsearch Fund of Sydney Medical School Foundation. This fund continues to carry out its original mission, "to assist the Senate and the Vice-Chancellor in the promotion of the object of the University in relation to the field of microsurgery and its application, through the Sydney Medical School."
