The purpose of the Foundation is to foster growth of medical
research with the knowledge that today's research is tomorrow's treatment.
The Nepean Medical Research Foundation was established to support medical research and scholarship conducted by the doctors and research teams at Sydney Medical School Nepean, located at Nepean Hospital. The Foundation’s role is to raise funds for medical research and scholarship by encouraging businesses, community groups and individuals in the Penrith and surrounding areas to support:
- Research projects investigating the causes and treatment of diseases affecting the population that is served by Nepean Hospital and the greater community at large;
- Improvements in patient care and community health through new methods of preventing and treating diseases; and
- Expanded research activities at Sydney Medical School Nepean which lead to more local jobs and the advancement of the Nepean school campus and facilities.
The Foundation's task is to encourage large enterprises, local business, community groups and individuals in the Penrith, St Marys, Blue Mountains, and Hawkesbury areas to support important locally based medical research.
