$325K to Support Austin Researchers in 2017

The AMRF is pleased to announce...



Grant opportunities for medical researchers at
the Austin precinct

 

The AMRF was established nearly half a century ago to support medical researchers at critical times in their research careers. AMRF funds:

 

  • Young researchers to kick-start their careers
  • Clinicians who would like to combine research and clinical work
  • Established researchers with innovative ideas

 

The AMRF has no red tape and streamlined management. This means that researchers spend less time filling in forms and more time doing research.

 

We also have an excellent track record in research management and can help researchers to understand how best to fund their work.

 

In 2015, we awarded  $400,000 in grants and funded 50% of applications. This represents a one-in-two chance of top-up funds for current projects, a seeding grant for a new idea or a priming grant for a new investigator. The AMRF also has individual awards for Distinguished Scientists and Young Investigators and a Postgraduate Scholarship.
