The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is the main statutory authority of the Australian Government responsible for medical research. As an independent arm of the Department of Health, the NHMRC funds high quality health and medical research, builds research capabilities in Australia, supports the translation of health and medical research into better health outcomes, and promotes ethics and integrity in research.

Throughout the year, the NHMRC invests in health and medical research via the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). Approximately 20 funding streams sit under the MRFF each year and are available to a range of administering institutions such as Universities, Research Institutes, Not-for-Profits, and Healthcare Services.

Join us at Grants Office Australia in November as we take a closer look at how the MRFF works. We’ll look at the timing of grant opportunities, eligibility requirements, funding amounts, and the types of projects that get funded. We will also cover the recent Federal Budget allocation for MRFF funding and discuss what this means for grant-seekers in Healthcare research.
