The Traumatic Brain Injury Mission will provide $50 million over 10 years under the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) to support research designed to improve the lives of all Australians who experience a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

    • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
    • rural, regional and remote populations
    • culturally and linguistically diverse populations.

This grant opportunity is being administered by NHMRC on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
