More of the same in med research funding split

Allocations from the Medical Research Future Fund go where NHMRC money goes

Group of Eight universities picked up a big share of last week’s MRFF grants, much like what happens with National Health and Medical Research Council awards.

Of a total of 193 MRFF grants the Group of Eight received 122 – and the share of the Fab Five (Queensland, Sydney, NSW, Monash and Melbourne) was even more pronounced, 104 grants.

In terms of the approximate (rounded by CMM) cash split, the Five received $200 of the total $380m – demonstrating what vast infrastructure and staff resources built over time, can help deliver.
