As a catalyst for achievement, the the Menzies Foundation's vision is to identify and promote the next generation of Australian leaders, invest in world class health research and advance initiatives of national importance.
Established in memory of Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest-serving Prime Minister, the Foundation is a non-political, not-for-profit organisation.
9 October 2014:
Griffith and the Menzies Foundation are set to collaborate together in a move which will position the University as a leader in world-class allied health research.
Under a Memorandum of Understanding formalised this week, the University’s Griffith Health Institute based at its Gold Coast campus, will be renamed the Menzies Health Institute Queensland (MHIQ).
The establishment of the new MHIQ will allow Griffith to enhance its research excellence through collaboration and resource sharing, as well as support greater engagement between academic researchers and healthcare professionals nationally and internationally.
