MRFF consultations

You can have your say on how we use the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) by taking part in our regular public consultations.

Consulting the public

You can have a say in how the Australian Government spends Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) money. 

Every 2 years, the Australian Medical Research Advisory Board (AMRAB) consults the public about the Australian Medical Research and Innovation Priorities for the MRFF. AMRAB then develops the next set of priorities based on this feedback.

AMRAB talks to:

  • the general public
  • organisations with expertise in health and medical research and innovation
  • consumer representatives
  • clinicians
  • health services managers.

We also consult the public on other relevant matter to compile consultation reports.
