The Medical Research Future Fund - Targeted Health System and Community Organisation Research grant opportunity aims to support research that addresses questions that focus on the comparative effectiveness of health services and areas of health system practice with low or insubstantial evidence. The Program will also address gaps in knowledge and evidence relating to health system issues important to the public, providing opportunities to explore consumer-driven research.
Health system research question topics for this grant opportunity are:
- Melanoma Surveillance Photography (MSP) to improve early detection of melanoma in very high risk (or high risk) patients
- Breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assist in the diagnosis, staging and pre-surgical planning of breast cancer.
This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Commonwealth Department of Health (the Department).
