Life Saving & Life Changing Research at Starship
The Starship Foundation and Starship Child Health are delighted to announce a significant new investment in clinical research & innovation.
Seven projects will benefit from a $570,000 investment commitment from the Starship Foundation. The seven successful projects tackle a broad range of important health challenges, including the high incidence of teenage suicide and depression, the incidence of brain injury and neurodevelopmental delays in infants requiring life-saving heart surgery and poor dental health in New Zealand's preschool children.
Thanks to your generosity, these seven research projects are now underway.
