Description:

The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) Traumatic Brain Injury Mission aims to accelerate Australian TBI research that develops and delivers innovative and effective treatments that substantially and equitably optimise and improve outcomes for people who experience TBI, in partnership with people with TBI and carers.

The objectives of the MRFF – TBI Mission – 2020 Traumatic Brain Injury Mission grant opportunity are outlined in the five Streams listed in the grant guidelines.

The intended outcome of the research is to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians by:

  • Stream 2 (Incubator): supporting health care providers to consistently deliver best practice treatment and care for moderate to severe TBI 
  • Stream 3 (Targeted Call for Research): reducing the extent of harm caused by  moderate to severe TBI by improving acute care practice
  • Stream 4 (Incubator): supporting health care providers to consistently deliver best practice treatments and care for mild TBI 
  • Stream 5 (Targeted Call for Research): identifying strategies for improving community awareness of TBI and responses to people living with TBI.

Applicants to this grant opportunity must propose research that addresses one of the five Streams only. Applicants must specify the Stream to which they are applying in their application.
