Physiotherapy Research Foundation

From management of lower back pain to stroke rehabilitation, advances in the treatment of physical conditions are largely informed by clinical research. Clinical trials produce a scientific evidence base which enables practising physiotherapists to adopt the latest, safest and most effective techniques when providing care and treatment.

The Physiotherapy Research Foundation provides grants to support innovative physiotherapy research. We’ve awarded over $1.31 million in grants since 1990, funding research across a range of areas including respiratory conditions, continence, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease.

Recipients of our seeding grants for early career researchers have gone on to successful research careers within Australian universities and internationally.
