RM Gibson Research Fund

RM Gibson Research Fund

In line with our mission of Expanding Knowledge of Ageing, the Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG) seeks to support the work undertaken by emerging researchers in any field of ageing through the RM Gibson Research Fund.

The fund was set up to honour the memory of Dr Richard (Dick) Maxwell Gibson who played a foundation role in the development of gerontology within Australia. He made a significant contribution to the AAG, including serving as our National President and the inaugural Chairman of the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics Asia Oceania Region.

Grants from the RM Gibson Research Fund are awarded on a competitive basis and applications are assessed by the committee on scientific merit and in accordance with specified criteria. The overall objective is to encourage good research, particularly from newer researchers in the fields of ageing across all disciplines of gerontology.

Breaking news - AAG is delighted to confirm that the 2016 RM Gibson Research Fund has been granted Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) Status and the Fund will now be formally set up a separate entity to AAG. This means donations of $2 and over to the Fund are fully tax deductible. This is fantastic news as it provides great opportunities for fundraising to support much needed research in this critical area.
