Congratulations to our NHMRC project grant recipients!

A/Prof Kat Holt
Congratulations to our 2018 National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) project grant recipients in Central Clinical School (CCS), see table below.

Monash University as a whole has been awarded almost $76 million in the latest round of NHMRC funding.

Federal Health Minister, the Hon. Greg Hunt, today announced over $500 million across 682 health and medical research grants through the NHMRC and the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF).

Monash attracted the most funding nationally bringing this year’s total to over $104 million in federal grants for medical and health research projects.

Monash attracted funding across six of the eight schemes announced today – Project Grants (74), Postgraduate Scholarships (11), TRIP Fellowships (6), Partnership Project Grants (1), Equipment Grant (1) and International Collaboration (1).

As we all know, the process is intensely competitive and many great research projects didn't make the cut. Hang in there! In addition to the CCS based recipients listed below, we would also like to congratulate A/Prof Kat Holt who received a grant and is currently at the University of Melbourne. Kat will be joining the Department of Infectious Diseases in 2019.
