Nominations are being sought from people with appropriate expertise to participate on the NHMRC Council and Principal Committees for the 2021-2024 triennium.

NHMRC is the nation’s leading body delivering health and medical research funding, our committee-based structure underpins NHMRC’s work and ensures that robust expert advice on a wide range of health and medical research and ethical matters is provided to the Council of NHMRC and Chief Executive Officer. Through our committees, researchers, healthcare professionals and consumer representatives contribute to the work of NHMRC, and provide a bridge to the community and research and health sectors.

In filling these committees, the Australian Government upholds its commitment to a gender diversity target of women holding 50 percent of government board positions overall, and women and men each holding at least 40 percent of positions at the individual board level.
