Monash Partners has applied to the MRFF to fund key projects in areas including primary and community health, women and children’s health, patient data and informatics, cancer and blood diseases, neuroscience, mental health and sleep, infection and inflammation, cardiovascular and critical care, trauma and perioperative medicine.

Monash Partner is one of four national leading Advanced Health Research Translation Centres (AHRTCs) accredited by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). Monash Partners’ members are Monash University, Monash Health, Alfred Health, Peninsula Health, Cabrini Health, Epworth Healthcare, Baker Institute, Burnet Institute, Eastern Health, and the Hudson Institute.

The MRFF offers the opportunity to strategically fund research and address national priorities in a cohesive and coordinated way. It complements existing medical research and innovation funding to improve health outcomes by distributing new funding in more diverse ways to support stronger partnerships between researchers, healthcare professionals, governments and the community. MRFF funding will complement the work of the National Health and Medical Research Council, the Commonwealth Science Council and the Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda, including the Biomedical Translation Fund.
