2011 marks 75 years of NHMRC support for Australian health and medical research. This year’s Ten of the Best features ten research projects that may produce some of our next 75 years of medical breakthroughs and help to address Australia’s greatest health challenges.

The researchers profiled here have developed a prototype of a simple test for HIV for use in poorer countries and promoted the introduction of folate in flour to reduce birth defects. Another project has shown the benefts of people with depression participating in work, potentially relieving some of the annual $3 billion cost to the community of depression-related sick leave.
