Medical Research Future Fund priorities under review


Priorities for the Medical Research Future Fund will be the topic of consultation when a national process opens on 29 June 2018 to inform the development of the next iteration of the Australian Medical Research and Innovation Priorities 2018-2020 (MRFF Priorities).

The Australian Medical Research Advisory Board (AMRAB) says it is interested in hearing views on the first set of MRFF Priorities from people with an interest in ensuring the Priorities for 2018-2020 accurately reflect strategic research investment opportunities.

Dates and locations for the public forums are as follows:
