About the Webinar

The Australian Medical Research Advisory Board (AMRAB) is currently conducting a consultation process for the Australian Medical Research and Innovation Strategy 2021-2026 (Strategy) and the related Australian Medical Research and Innovation Priorities (Priorities).

AMRAB sets the Strategy every 5 years. It takes into account Australia’s health needs and areas that need greater investment. The Priorities that are in force must be consistent with the Strategy. Therefore, the Priorities are being revisited as part of the process to ensure their alignment with the Strategy.

The consultation provides a platform to discuss your views on whether the Strategy and Priorities could be improved to better meet the purpose set out in the MRFF Act, what critical issues and factors should the next Strategy and Priorities address to guide MRFF investments in health and medical research, and options to address these critical issues and factors.

A presentation will be provided by AMRAB Chair Professor Ian Frazer AC and Deputy-Chair Professor Caroline Homer AO followed by an opportunity for feedback and comment.
