$5.7m ARC funding success for SBS researchers

Congratulations to our researchers awarded Discovery Project grants in the recent funding round.

A total of 10 Discovery Projects have been funded across the School of Biomedical Sciences as part of the Australian Research Council's (ARC) announcement last week.

With a focus on investing in research to drive economic recovery, the Morrison Government is providing $255 million in university research as part of the plan to help drive Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19. Funding for a total of 591 research projects has been awarded to Australian researchers in the ARC’s Discovery Projects 2021, Round 1.

The Discovery Projects scheme aims expand the knowledge base and research capacity in Australia and support research that will provide economic, commercial, environmental, social and/or cultural benefits for Australia.
