Expertly executed research projects have the power to enhance lives and, in some cases, save lives. With your support, we can accelerate research at Auckland City Hospital and further improve the health outcomes for all New Zealanders.

We recognise the potential for research to vastly improve our health outcomes, today and into the future.

Having an excellent programme of research distinguishes great hospitals from good ones.  Auckland City Hospital is the largest teaching hospital and the largest clinical research facility in New Zealand.

From innovative cancer treatments and advancements in women’s health, to complex heart and lung transplant studies, our donors can support world-first research that could save lives and change healthcare globally.

Its research portfolio comprises over 1,300 projects. The DHB’s doctors, nurses, scientists and allied health engage in research that attracts participation and peer esteem both from New Zealand and internationally.

Auckland City Hospital provides a first-class setting for research across the health spectrum, and you can help make it happen.

Researchers at Auckland City Hospital have been major drivers internationally for research that has delivered improved treatments for heart attack prevention, COVID-19, Hepatitis C and the groundbreaking Endovascular Clot Retrieval we now see saving lives every day.
