Research funding from WA government

Every little bit helps

The WA Budget kicks $52m in new money into medical research, albeit over three years. And the state government confirms that once legislated interest on the $1.3bn state future fund will go to health and medical research, “transforming WA into a leader in medical research and innovation.” The Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes thinks this is very good indeed, assuring Premier McGowan, “medical research is one of the best investments a government can make in our future health.”

UWA is also pleased with $10m in the budget for the micro-scale LNG plant it will use for research. The plant was announced last month (CMM April 3).
