NSW Health Hyperemesis Gravidarum Research Grants Program

Posted: 5 August 2022

Closing Date: 23 August 2022

The Sax Institute is assisting the NSW Government in disseminating information on this important program offering up to $1.2 million for research into severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. Hyperemesis gravidarum is the main cause of hospitalisation for women in the first half of pregnancy. Affecting about 1.1% of pregnant women, it usually starts early in pregnancy, with some women continuing to experience hyperemesis gravidarum throughout pregnancy.

The Grants Program research priority areas include:

  • What are the immediate and long-term physical, psychological and social consequences of hyperemesis gravidarum on the pregnant woman and her baby?
  • How can the services provided to families be improved throughout preconception, diagnosis, management, and treatment?
  • What can be done to prevent hyperemesis gravidarum in the first or subsequent pregnancies?
  • What are the relative efficacies of treatment options and their immediate and long-term side effects?

The Chief Investigator must reside in NSW and must be employed by an eligible NSW-based host organisation for the entire period of the grant. The administering/host organisation must be a university, medical research institute or non-government organisation in NSW.

Grant applications will close on Tuesday 23 August 2022.
