A restructured grant funding program will be implemented in late 2018 – early 2019, for peer review during 2019 and funding in 2020.

The Minister for Health and Sport, the Hon Greg Hunt MP, and the NHMRC CEO, Professor Anne Kelso, will announce these changes at Parliament House next week. A live stream of the announcement will be available on Thursday 25 May 2017, commencing at 10am (AEST).
