The NHMRC consolidates within a single national organisation the often independent functions of research funding and development of advice. One of its strengths is that it brings together and draws upon the resources of all components of the health system, including governments, medical practitioners, nurses and allied health professionals, researchers, teaching and research institutions, public and private program managers, service administrators, community health organisations, social health researchers and consumers.
The council is the main official body for health research ethics related issues. It is responsible for major publications and guidelines applied throughout Australia. The NHMRC provides comprehensive information on HREC's and publications online.
