Central Clinical School (CCS) funds 'Near Miss' grants

This year though there were many highly ranked grant applications for NHMRC funding, the overall percentage of applications funded was substantially down. CCS gave $150,000 for the two most highly ranked grant applications which missed out. Congratulations to the two 'Near Miss' grant recipients, A/Prof Margaret Hibbs and Prof Jenny Wilkinson-Berka.

Prof Jenny Wilkinson-Berka
Jenny and her team also from the Department of Immunology have been awarded $50,000 to support their NHMRC Project Grant application entitled “The contribution of TH17 cells to retinopathy of prematurity.” Laboratory link.
