A new AAMRI analysis on the 2020 NHMRC Investigator Grant outcomes has shown the medical research institute (MRI) sector had a success rate higher than the national success rate for the scheme.

 

 

Medical research institute researchers were awarded 100 Investigator Grants in 2020, representing 44% of the total funding awarded.

 

Researchers at medical research institutes were awarded the largest share of funding in Leadership level grants, particularly L1 (52.4% grants and funding) and L3 (51.1% grants and 48.5% funding).

 

 

 

Two thirds of the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Investigator Grants were awarded to researchers at medical research institutes. These grants were funded through the MRFF Investigator Grant Priority Round.
