The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Coronavirus Research Response – 2021 COVID-19 Treatment Access and Public Health Activities Grant Opportunity aims to support Australian medical research and medical innovation projects that:

Stream 2: accelerate the development of antiviral candidates to prevent or treat SARS-CoV-2.

Stream 3: characterise the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 variants in children, adolescents, adults and vulnerable populations to improve understanding of how immune responses vary between variants and across cohorts and populations.

Stream 4: generate knowledge of how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted through air to inform new and/or improved models of COVID-19 transmission.

Stream 5: establish a national linked data platform that integrates relevant existing health data sets for the purposes of strengthening evidence-based public health and health system planning and management for future pandemics.
