National consultation to set MRFF medical research priorities

Health Industry Hub | September 16, 2020 |

Medical News: A national consultation process will guide the third set of the Morrison Government’s ground-breaking Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Australian Medical Research and Innovation Priorities for 2020–2022.

This consultation process will ensure the MRFF continues to target national health priorities for better health outcomes.

Nadia Levin, CEO and Managing Director said “With the MRFF reaching full capitalisation of $20 billion this year, it plays as key funding role for all stages of Australian health and medical research. As we have throughout the history of MRFF, Research Australia will be engaging closely in the development of the next set of priorities to ensure that all stages of the medical research pipeline can benefit. It will be central to growing our sector and positioning Australia as a global leader in health and medical research and innovation.”

Determining future health priorities is about taking into account the burden of disease in Australians and the need to enhance the translation of research into clinical practice.

Australia’s health and medical researchers are world class and the Government continues to drive investment in ways that deliver the practical benefits of medical research and innovation to all Australians.

The landmark $20 billion MRFF is enhancing this growth in Australia’s cutting-edge health and medical research.
