Since its launch in 2011, the Macular Disease Foundation Australia (MDFA) Research Grants Program has committed almost $3.6 million to support world leading Australian researchers across 18 research projects.
The aim of the Research Grants Program is to fulfill MDFA’s objective to support research to reduce the incidence and impact of macular disease and ultimately to find cures.
MDFA Grants make significant contributions to Australian medical, social, low vision and nutritional research into macular disease. They are awarded following rigorous evaluation, based largely on the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) process, along with peer review, to ensure that the successful applicants meet the highest standards.
The next round of Research Grants for research commencing in 2020 has opened and applications will be accepted from 1 March 2019 until 2 June 2019, and the successful recipients will be announced on World Sight Day – 10 October 2019.
