The MRFF is investing to supercharge the growth of our health and medical research, while fuelling jobs, economic growth and export potential. 

The MRFF delivers better and more advanced health care and medical technology for Australians. It supports our inspiring researchers to make the next big medical discoveries that benefit all Australians. It’s about giving hope to Australians in need, where previously there was none, and creating the opportunity to have a better and longer life.
