The MRFF is a once in a generation opportunity to significantly reshape the landscape of Australian medical research and innovation. Australia has world leading health and medical research (HMR) and a world-class health system, but too often they operate in isolation from each other rather than as one system with the aim of a healthier community.

The MRFF provides the opportunity to bridge the gaps between the two so that Australian medical research and innovation in partnership with health practitioners delivers the new practices, services and products needed to continue to improve the health, wellbeing and prosperity of Australians.

Consultations have started on the second MRFF Priorities
