Have your say – consultations

The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) consults with researchers, clinicians and the general public in an open process through public national consultations.

MRFF consultations provide Australians with the opportunity to define national health and medical research priorities.

Current consultations

There are currently no open consultations for MRFF.

Previous consultations

The Australian Medical Research Advisory Board held a national consultation process to inform the 2018–2020 MRFF Priorities in July and August 2018.

The process began with the release of the consultation discussion paper.

The public provided online submissions through the consultation hub. Public forums on the Priorities were also held around the country:
