Medical researchers’ election ask

The medical research institute lobby’s election election statement calls on all parties, “to show their commitment for Australia’s future health and wellbeing,” presumably by giving its members a bucket of money.  

The Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes calls for:

* full $20bn capitalisation of the Medical Research Future Fund by 2020-21, as originally planned

*  grant funding above inflation

* Investment in mid-career opportunities for researchers.

The statement is in-line with AAMRI’s budget submission (CMM February 11).
