Financial Markets Foundation for Children donation to establish new Chair in Neonatal Paediatrics.

A new Chair in Neonatal Paediatrics will fast-track Monash University, Monash Health and Hudson Institute’s joint vision for newborn medicine and serve the community through advanced treatments and interventions and education programs.

A philanthropic gift, from Australia’s major banks including the Reserve Bank of Australia, helped establish this Chair, a first for the south-east corridor of Melbourne.  Thanks to the $5 million gift to Monash University from the Financial Markets Foundation for Children in 2019, and an extensive global search, we are delighted to announce that Professor Rod Hunt has accepted the prestigious Chair and will join us in October 2020.
