NHMRC Investigator grant success

Congratulations to three of our Maridulu Budyari Gumal Nursing and Midwifery Implementation Science Academy members, Professor Sandy Middleton, Dr Caleb Ferguson, and Dr Christine Catling who were all awarded National Health and Medical Research Council Investigator Grants. On 20th May, the Minister for Health, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP, announced the outcomes of the 2020 NHMRC Investigator Grants that were established by the Federal Government to support research programs of outstanding investigators at all career stages. With only 13% of applicants successful this year, the scheme provides funding over five-years commencing in 2021.

Wishing them all great success over the next five years!
