The Medical Research Future Fund – Emerging Priorities and Consumer Driven Research Initiative is designed to support high quality research that improves patient care, translates new discoveries and encourages joint collaboration of consumers and researchers in undertaking research in emerging priority areas.
The objectives of the 2019 Mental Health Pharmacogenomics Grant Opportunity are to:
- reduce barriers to clinical uptake of pharmacogenomics testing for patients presenting with neuropsychiatric conditions
- address gaps in evidence related to the application of pharmacogenomics for neuropsychiatric conditions
- encourage research that combines new or existing technologies with large-scale data, machine learning, clinical information, or patient biomarkers to develop new or refine existing tests that facilitate improved personalisation and efficacy of psychotropic medication regimens.
This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health.
