Macular Disease Foundation Australia’s Research Grants Program opened its third round of applications in late March 2015.
Grants are open to researchers based in eligible Australian institutions to pursue research into medical, social, low vision, and nutritional research of macular degeneration.
The grants are awarded following rigorous evaluation, based largely on the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) process, along with international peer review, to ensure that the successful applicants meet the highest standards.
Macular Disease Foundation Australia Research Grants Program was launched in 2011 to fulfil the Foundation’s objective to support research to reduce the incidence and impact of macular degeneration, and ultimately to find a cure. Since the Program launch, over $1.5 million has been committed to world leading Australian researchers.
Researchers wishing to apply are asked to check back to the website, as all information will be loaded by 27 March at the latest.
