There has always been a marriage between research and patient care. Research has driven the radical changes to healthcare that continue to improve our daily lives.

The greatest advancements have come through the collaboration of academic researchers, clinical-researchers and clinicians. Enabling, encouraging and financially supporting these collaborations is at the very core of the AAHA.

AAHA researchers and clinicians are engaged with their peers in New Zealand and around the world, focussing on key NZ health issues.

Auckland's innovative researchers will continue to revolutionise care with new treatments and technologies, thanks to support from philanthropists and other funders. 

The AAHA Research Collaboration Fund is a new source of funding for researchers.  Visit this section to find out how to apply and read about the recipients.
