National Health and Medical Research Council

National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funding is awarded across the spectrum of health and medical research, from the basic sciences to clinical, public health, and health services research. 

At UQ, NHMRC funding applications must be submitted to the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) in UQ Research and Innovation (UQR&I).

The OSR is also responsible for the central administration of successful NHMRC grants, including grant establishment and lodgement of post-award variations and NHMRC progress and final reports. 

NHMRC scheme information

The NHMRC’s Grant Programs have undergone important changes. UQR&I has a dedicated scheme page for each individual NHMRC funding scheme with useful information and resources. To assist researchers in determining their eligibility in the first round of the new Grant Programs, the NHMRC has released a new Eligibility Tool which calculates limits indicatively, and a useful Eligibility Matrix. The team at UQR&I can also provide individualised eligibility advice.
