Florey Medical Research Foundation

Named after Lord Howard Florey, a University of Adelaide graduate who shared a Nobel Prize for his development of penicillin, the Florey Medical Research Foundation raises funds for postgraduate research scholarships and early-career postdoctoral research fellowships within the medical degree.

Lord Florey and his team of scientists changed the course of history when they developed penicillin into a life-saving antibiotic treatment. Today, through the foundation that bears his name, his lifetime of achievement continues to inspire Adelaide students and researchers alike.

The foundation is based within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.
