NHMRC Ideas Grants support innovative and creative projects in all areas of health and medical research

A UOW project to develop an innovative treatment for peripheral nerve injury, and another to develop a tool to help carers recognise language disorders and delays in young children, have been awarded funding through the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Ideas Grants scheme.

Federal Minister for Health the Hon Greg Hunt MP announced the successful NHMRC Ideas Grants projects on Tuesday (15 December), with two UOW-led projects among those awarded funding.

The Ideas Grant scheme supports a broad range of innovative and creative projects in all areas of health and medical research from discovery science through to clinical research, health services and public health research.

UOW Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research & Innovation) Jennifer L Martin AC welcomed the funding announcement.

“Congratulations to all the UOW researchers involved in successful collaborative Ideas Grants. These are fascinating and important projects and I look forward to following their progress,” Professor Martin said.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge those applicants who were not funded in this round of NHMRC Ideas Grants. I thank them for their research passion, and for the time and effort they put in to their grant submission.”
