Australian Medical Research Advisory Board consultation: Medical Research Future Fund Priorities

The Australian Medical Research Advisory Board (AMRAB) is conducting a consultation to develop the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Australian Medical Research and Innovation Priorities 2020-22 (the Priorities).

The Priorities are considered by the Minister for Health before the Commonwealth Government decides on the disbursement of funding from the MRFF. It is therefore important that the community – patients, clinicians and researchers alike – are engaged in consultation.

Further information about the consultation opportunity, including a Consultation Guidance Paper that has been prepared by AMRAB, is available via the Department of Health’s consultation hub. Public submissions can be made through the consultation hub. The process will be supported by public webinars and where necessary, targeted virtual roundtable discussions. Details and booking arrangements for the webinars will be made available on the MRFF website.

The consultation opportunity will be open until 7 October 2020.
