Congratulations to our 2019 NHMRC grant winners

CCS's 13 successful Investigator grant recipients
Congratulations to our National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Investigator grant recipients in Central Clinical School (CCS)!

CCS researchers have been awarded a total of $22.5 million across 13 grants, the highest number in our Faculty. CCS areas of expertise range across the discipline areas of sexual health, blood diseases, neuroscience, infectious diseases, diabetes, immunology and mental health. Funding for these grants will begin in 2020.

Overall, the Faculty's clinical schools did outstandingly well, with the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health obtaining 8 Investigator grants. Our sister school at the Alfred campus, Public Health and Preventive Medicine, also did well. Congratulations to all!

Monash University as a whole has been awarded $53.7 million in the latest round of NHMRC funding for investigator grants, announced last Thursday, 29 August 2019.

We would especially like to congratulate our Emerging Leader grant winners, young researchers mentored by established researchers, whose work shows great potential for transforming people's lives for the better.
