A medical grant bridge too far, (unless you are quick) 

Researchers have three weeks to apply for federal funding

Ever-announcing Health Minister Greg Hunt says the government is, “providing unprecedented funding to help our best and brightest health and medical researchers.”

Especially ones quick on the draw when it comes to grants.

Yesterday Mr Hunt told researchers that the $22.3 million Biomedical Translation Bridge opens for applicants on Monday.

The programme is designed to “accelerate development of their biological, pharmaceutical, medical and health technology projects along the translation and commercialisation pathway.”

But they will need to be way-down the pitch highway to qualify, applications close March 6.
