$32 million for the next generation of clinician researchers to pursue critical health and medical research

20 May 2020

The Australian Government will invest almost $32 million through the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) in world-leading health and medical research projects.

30 early- to mid-career researchers will be offered 5-year grants funded through the Investigator Grants: MRFF Priority Round. These grants in 2 cohorts, the first starting in 2020 and the second in 2021.

This grant opportunity is part of the MRFF Clinician Researchers initiative, which will invest $190.8 million over 10 years in clinician researcher fellowships. This funding will enable Australia’s health care professionals, who might otherwise have had to choose between life as a researcher or a clinician, to:

  • drive research questions
  • develop new discoveries
  • apply best-practice care for their patients

These grants provide research-focused clinicians with dedicated time and resources to help them translate research findings into clinical practice in different areas.

The grants are now under offer to the successful applicants – read more here.
