Cure Kids runs a robust process for assessing and selecting research proposals. All proposals are subject to appraisal by our Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee, comprising eight child health experts across a range of disciplines. Project Grant proposals which make it through the first assessment round are then peer reviewed, the gold-standard in research assessment. These reviewers, both international and local, are generally experts in the specific field, and are critical to providing expert judgement on the proposed research. All assessments, including final scoring, are done anonymously, which helps reduce any conflicts of interest, as well as any bias.
We are currently funding over $10 million across 60 research projects. To see what projects we are funding, please see the section "Our Research".
Currently 74 cents in every dollar fundraised goes towards research (based on our 2017 Annual Report) – we continuously review our expenses for improvement to ensure we can fund as many research projects as possible.
In 2017, we delivered the highest level of investment in research yet at $5.2m per annum, and we currently have over $10 million in funds committed to research projects which will improve and/or save the lives of children and their families.
