INSPIRE Magazine

In this 23rd issue of INSPIRE we focus on the significant value of investment in health and medical research and in particular, the role of philanthropy in the value chain. The pandemic has shown us just how much we need critical research skills, and they are not developed overnight. Research is a long term; sustained investment. This issue showcases how philanthropic investment in medical research is stepping in. This support of our world-leading scientists to undertake research to produce the health solutions is much needed to improve patient care and quality of life of the world’s populations.

This issue also gives an overview of Research Australia’s Pre-Election Summit and the winners of the 18th Research Australia Health and Medical Research Awards.
