Dr Tyani Chan, recipient of an NHMRC New Investigator Project Grant
22 October 2014
Scientists from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research received $10.7 million in peer reviewed grant funding, out of a total funding pool of $538.8 million, in the latest round of National Health and Medical Research Council grants, announced last Friday by Prime Minister Tony Abbott, accompanied by Federal Minister for Health Peter Dutton.
Over the last few years, Garvan’s success rate, in terms of percentage of NHMRC Project Grant applications funded to those submitted, has been well above the national average, and this year was no different. Garvan researchers were successful in 22% of applications (16 Project Grants), in comparison to the national average of 14.9%.
Garvan wholeheartedly celebrates the success of those who have received NHMRC Project Grants this year. We are particularly delighted for the New Investigator Project Grant recipients, Drs Kim Loh and Tyani Chan. These are awarded to early career researchers who have not previously received major grant funding.
We also congratulate three recipients of NHMRC Early Career Fellowships: Drs Fabian Buske, Kishore Kumar and Romain Rouet.
