The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is administering two competitive grant opportunities on behalf of the Department of Health for two programs under the Medical Research Future Fund. Grant guidelines are available from GrantConnect and applications need to be submitted through the NHMRC’s Research Grant Management System (RGMS).
Lifting Clinical Trials and Registry Capacity – Grant Opportunity
This competitive grant opportunity will stimulate clinical trial and registry activity with priority to be given to under-researched health priorities, such as rare cancers and rare diseases. Novel and innovative trial designs and recruitment strategies and the application of precision medicine will also be encouraged under this grant opportunity.
An MRFF Rare Cancers and Rare Diseases Fact Sheet is also available
Antimicrobial Resistance – Targeted Call for Research
The NHMRC has opened a Targeted Call for Research focussing on antimicrobial resistance in residential aged care facilities. This competitive grant opportunity aims to stimulate research on novel and innovative methodologies, such as genomics, to determine antimicrobial resistance profiles and transmission within and to/from residential aged care facilities. This knowledge will assist in the promotion and development of optimal and appropriate antimicrobial use in residential aged care facilities.
