This Medical Research Future Fund Emerging Priorities and Consumer Driven Research Initiative grant opportunity will accelerate research into the development of a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. 

Given the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 outbreak, applicants must propose research that will support the rapid development of a vaccine, including demonstration of partnerships that will provide access to critical resources necessary to complete the project.

The intended outcome of the research funded under this priority is to accelerate the development of a safe, effective vaccine for SARS-CoV-2.

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

Further information on the Medical Research Future Fund and the Emerging Priorities and Consumer Driven Research Initiative is available on the Department’s website at: https://www.health.gov.au/mrff.
