The AAMRI Member Reports: Snapshot of Australia’s Medical Research Institutes

AAMRI Member Survey & Report

As the peak body for medical research institutes (MRIs) across Australia, AAMRI captures a snapshot of its member medical research institutes through a biennial survey. Since 2011, AAMRI has collected data from its member medical research institutes (MRIs) on their workforce, revenue & expenditure, success in competitive grant schemes (e.g. NHMRC) and research outputs and translation activities.

The 2020 AAMRI Member Report

We have created a short animation, covering the highlights, key figures and some interesting facts from the 2020 report:

You can read the report, Australian Medical Research Institutes – The AAMRI Report 2020, online.

In the 2020 report, we provide a snapshot of the medical research institute sector’s workforce, revenue and expenditure, funding the full cost of research and research translation.

As you navigate the report you will see we have viewed the data through the lens of our new COVID-19 world. Although the data collection was completed prior to COVID-19 entering Australia in
large numbers, we are all acutely aware that our sector, and Australia, will not look the same again for some time to come.

Therefore, we have taken this opportunity to create a pre-pandemic snapshot while also providing commentary on our current situation in 2020. This will help us plan for the future.
