The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) is Australia’s largest health and medical research funding body. NHMRC awards grants through several funding schemes to advance health and medical knowledge in order to improve the health status of all Australians.

NHMRC invests in the highest quality research and researchers, as determined through peer review, across the four pillars of health and medical research: biomedical, clinical, public health and health services.
