Future Vision Foundation Research Funding

The Vision Eye Institute has launched a third round of grant funding by its not-for-profit research charity, the Future Vision Foundation.

Launched in 2021, early research projects funded by the Foundation are now reaching completion, and Foundation CEO Amanda Cranage said study findings have been shared through conferences and publications.

The Future Vision Foundation… “bridges the gap between established, experienced researchers and those starting out on their journey”

Several projects have successfully involved collaboration with a tertiary or government institution, she said.

The Future Vision Foundation is committed to early career researchers, and “bridges the gap between established, experienced researchers and those starting out on their journey”, Ms Cranage said.

“This unique approach encourages new researchers while simultaneously injecting fresh perspectives and ideas into ophthalmology.”

For successful applications, the Foundation will provide:

  • Research funding
  • Clinical resources to assist with conducting the study, collecting samples and analysing data
  • Mentoring and advice for less experienced investigators.

Proposals must be accompanied by a robust study design, feasibility, analysis and presentation strategy, and Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) approval if applicable. Each submission must include at least one Vision Eye Institute doctor partner to be accepted.

Funding applications close on 10 May. For further information, visit the Future Vision Foundation website.

Early career researchers who think they have an idea with potential clinical, procedural or administrative benefits to patients and across ophthalmology are encouraged to contact the Foundation before applying, as as it offers helpful advice.
