AAMRI welcomes Canberra's fresh commitment to medical research funding

Professor Suzanne Cory, President and Prof. Garry Jennings, President-elect of AAMRI, have welcomed today's news from Minister Tony Abbott and Senator Nick Minchin that the Commonwealth government will increase funding for medical research in this year's budget as a result of the sale of Medibank Private.

Professor Jennings said, "AAMRI welcomes the decision to increase funding as part of the Government's response to the Grant Review. We look forward to the budget for further details, and hope that the recommendations of the Grant Review are implemented.

The Commonwealth government has made quite profound commitments within the last ten years to increasing the capabilities of Australian medical research for the ultimate benefit of improved health for all Australians. We hope that today's announcement will mean a further commitment to building on what we already have to strengthen our credentials for groundbreaking research in Australia."

The Grant Review, set up by the Government, in 2004 recommended significant increases in funding for health and medical research via the NHMRC.
