$100 million for medical research technology
The Australian Government is investing $100 million into the development of new technologies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of stroke, epilepsy and lung disease, including COVID-19.
This funding from the Medical Research Future Fund’s Frontier Health and Medical Research initiative will support the development of:
- lightweight brain scanners that can be carried in ambulances to treat stroke victims
- a platform of artificial intelligence based expertise and clinical decision support, to provide people with epilepsy with the best practice care, and
- safe, rapid and easy to use lung scanners.
