The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) – 2020 Neurofibromatosis Research Grant Opportunity will provide grants of financial assistance to support Australian medical research projects that:

  • Stream 1: build knowledge of the factors that drive variation in the clinical presentation of neurofibromatosis for the purpose of generating new interventions
  • Stream 2: use clinical trials to test the effectiveness of new interventions for the treatment of neurofibromatosis.

The intended outcome of the research is to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians by generating knowledge that will lead to new interventions that reduce the clinical impact of neurofibromatosis. 

This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health. 

Further information on the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) is available from the Department of Health’s MRFF website
