Australian Respiratory Council


Harry Windsor Research Grants

These grants were 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. Dr Windsor was actively involved with ARC and its Board from 1955 until his death in 1987. These awards were offered annually between 1999 and 2019 to support research projects that addressed basic science, clinical research, and public health in tuberculosis, respiratory diseases due to other infections, or respiratory diseases related to tobacco use.
