MRFF Strategies and Priorities

The second five-year Australian Medical Research and Innovation Strategy 2021-2026 (the Strategy) prepared by the Australian Medical Research Advisory Board (Advisory Board) sets out the vision, aims and objectives for the MRFF. It identifies a series of strategic platforms that, if funded, have potential for greatest impact. These platforms will serve as a framework for the two-yearly identification of the Australian Medical Research and Innovation Priorities (the Priorities).
