The Medical Research Future Fund Emerging Priorities and Consumer Driven Research (EPCDR) Initiative aims to enable or support:
- high quality biomedical, clinical, health services and/or population health research that improves patient care
- translation of new discoveries into clinical practice
- new diagnoses, treatments and cures to those suffering from rare and debilitating conditions
- joint collaboration of consumers and researchers in undertaking research in emerging priority areas, and
- many Australians with debilitating conditions.
The objective of the 2020 Bushfire Impact Research Grant Opportunity is to link researchers, institutions, policy makers and professional associations together to gather evidence on the physiological and mental health effects of bushfires and exposure to hazardous smoke over time.

Applications under Stream 2 of this grant opportunity must address evidence gaps related to building mental health resilience following the 2019-20 bushfire events and exposure to hazardous bushfire smoke.
