Special HRI home-loan package with NAB Newtown
NAB Newtown are our neighbours and committed supporters of HRI. They offer a special home-loan package to HRI family and friends, where a percentage of each loan is donated back to the HRI to help fund life-saving research.
World Heart Day
Each year for World Heart Day, NAB Newtown decks out the branch with HRI balloons, banners, collection tins and posters to raise vital funds and bring awareness around cardiovascular disease to the community. HRI representatives have set up in NAB Newtown’s premium window space to do blood pressure and pulse checks for customers, detecting for atrial fibrillation, which puts people at risk of stroke.
Staff across NAB are also generous supporters of our work through NAB’s workplace giving program, where NAB matches every cent donated by their employees. You can find out more about how to donate to the HRI through workplace giving here.

We are grateful to NAB for supporting us with professional expertise, venue space, opportunities to engage with staff, working space and training opportunities free of charge.
NAB Community Grant
In 2016, the HRI were proud to award our inaugural career re-start grant. The award is to acknowledge and help overcome some of the barriers women in science face – in particular, the challenge to remain competitive while on maternity leave. A grant of $60,000 was awarded to one of our Group Leaders to help her kick-start her research output on return from maternity leave by employing a research assistant. This award was made possible thanks to a NAB Community Grant.
