Helping people introduce regular bursts of strenuous physical activity in their daily routines and a printable collagen-based eye healant are two of the projects funded through the latest round of NHMRC grants for 2019.
Sydney researchers received 23 Ideas grants, 10 postgraduate scholarships, four Clinical Trials and Cohort Studies grants, three Targeted Calls for Research grants and a Synergy grant during the latest round.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research), Professor Duncan Ivison said the funding was critical in helping researchers explore gaps in knowledge and undertake innovative research which has the potential to improve the quality of life and health of many.
“From improving organ transplant acceptance to research into Alzheimer’s and opioid addiction, these grants will help our researchers further their knowledge in a diverse range of fields and develop new preventions and treatments to help improve the quality of life for many,” Professor Ivison said.
“We’re very proud of those researchers who were successful in this round and we’re working hard to support those who are preparing to submit in future ones. Biomedical and clinical research is a huge part of our research endeavours at Sydney and we’re committed to doing even better.”
