The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) – Stem Cell Therapies Mission provides $150 million over 10 years from 2019-20 to support stem cell research to deliver innovative, safe and effective treatments.
The objective of the 2020 Stem Cell Therapies Grant Opportunity is to prime teams working on ‘proof of concept’ stem cell research targeted towards a health care outcome. Funding for such priming programs will target two priority areas aimed at driving innovation and accelerating implementation into clinical practice:
- Stem cell therapies
- New treatments using human tissues made from stem cells
This grant opportunity is being administrated by NHMRC on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health. The total amount available is $6 million.
