Discoveries Need Dollars - Protect Research!

The future of medical research in Australia is being debated and your support is vital. The McKeon Review public consultation is on Tuesday, and it is critical that we demonstrate to the panel the strength of support for health and medical research in Melbourne.


Tuesday 1 May 2-4pm

Crown Melbourne Conference Centre, conference hall 1, level 2 (entrance 8 Whiteman Street, Southbank).

Because plans for the next ten years of health and medical research in Australia will effect you.

About this time last year, we rallied for research to fight the budget cuts and we won. And one of the things we won was this strategic review of health and medical research, called the McKeon Review. They are going to make recommendations to the Government on what Government needs to do to support medical research in Australia. It would be terrible to waste this opportunity to influence the recommendations that the McKeon Review panel will put to Government.

So it's time to show your support again. If you've every complained about the NHMRC, if you've ever worried about your career, your funding, your work/life balance, the future of your research... then be a part of the process that could change it all.

Register your interest here or via email to let them know you'll be there.
