The Common Good
The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation
The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation (TPCHF) was formed in 1986 with the primary goal of funding critical research at The Prince Charles Hospital. Today TPCHF has become a major research funding body focusing on the areas of heart, lung, dementia, arthritis, among others. We’re proud to support researchers working with The Prince Charles Hospital, which is one of the world’s leading heart and lung hospitals.
The Common Good
The Common Good is an initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation. It’s a movement of all of us working together to give precious time to researchers who in turn can help us & those we love to live happier, healthier and longer lives. The Common Good is people powering medical discoveries.
Help us, help them to help you
The Common Good funds the researchers who are making a difference to the lives of everyday Australians. Chronic disease will affect 4 out of every 5 Australians, and researchers at The Prince Charles Hospital are tackling these very conditions. It’s therefore critical that we back the researchers who strive for the medical discoveries that will improve our lives.
Once such researcher is Matthew Wells. Organ transplant is a precious gift that saves lives, but we need to better understand how the transplanted organ functions before and after transplant. Matt is looking at how the donated heart metabolises nutrients and creates energy. By understanding this process new drugs can be designed to improve the donated organs, thus improving the quality and number of donor hearts available for transplant. This will help more Australians who require a transplant to live longer and healthier lives.
The cost of research is just $44 an hour and discoveries can happen at any time. The more we support research, the greater and speedier the outcome.
