The Menzies School of Health Research (Menzies) has been awarded federal funding for 11 competitive grants and fellowships to help improve outcomes for disadvantaged populations in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Thirty-eight per cent of Menzies' grant applications were selected for funding through a highly competitive national process by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC); double the Australian average success rate of 19 per cent.
Menzies director, Professor Alan Cass said the result highlighted the quality of the research ideas and the strong history of engagement of the research staff at Menzies. Prof Cass said he commended the Australian Government's commitment to research, particularly in the area of Indigenous health. 'There is no quick fix in Indigenous health, but slowly, surely, we are gaining ground. Our work is having a meaningful and measureable impact and improving the lives of Indigenous people across Australia.'
