These grants are named in honour of the late Dr Harry Windsor, a leading Australian heart surgeon who played a key role in ARC for many years.

Dr Windsor performed the first heart transplant operation in Australia and was a prominent cardiothoracic surgeon at Sydney’s St Vincent’s Hospital.
He was actively involved with ARC and its Board from 1955 until his death in 1987.

These awards are being offered nationally to support research in:

  • Tuberculosis
  • Respiratory diseases related to other infections
  • Smoking-related respiratory diseases

Research which also address community issues or the health of disadvantaged groups are particularly encouraged.

Several grants of approximately $50,000 are offered each year.

Grants are available for projects submitted to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) which are considered fundable but which do not reach the cut-off mark for funding in any one year.
