Australia’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) awards Monash University over $75 million. This award is the largest among a total of over $400 million allocated to various research centers reports Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt. Medical research is a hot topic in Australia—Melbourne is increasingly becoming a global life science research hub—and Monash was just awarded more than any other university. Monash has received a total of $148.2 million just in 2019—an increase of $42 million over the previous year and a new record. Exciting things are happening in Southern Australia.
Monash University funding applies to six of the seven NHMRC categories announced including Idea grants (49), Postgraduate Scholarships (8), Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies (5), Synergy Grants (3), Partnership Grants (1) and Targeted Calls for Research (1).
Monash will deploy these funds into important research focusing on the development of new antimalarial drugs, clinical trials to reduce methamphetamine use and developing an integrated approach to precision medicine centering on antimicrobial resistance of bacterial ‘superbugs.’
