​Applications for funding 2016-2020 - CLOSED

The NSW Ministry of Health invited eligible organisations to apply for funding under the 2016-2020 funding round of the Medical Research Support Program (MRSP 2016-2020). The Medical Research Support Program (MRSP) is a funding program providing infrastructure support to independent Medical Research Institutes in NSW. MRSP has been operating in its current form since 2003. The Program is administered through the Office for Health and Medical Research (OHMR), based at the NSW Ministry of Health

The purpose of MRSP is to support state-wide capacity to deliver world class health and medical research through the provision of funding for research infrastructure. It is estimated that for every dollar in research funding received, an additional 60-80 cents is needed to cover indirect costs, depending on the type of research. MRSP is the major source of infrastructure funding for independent Medical Research Institutes in NSW.

The objectives of MRSP are to:

  • Support excellence in health and medical research and the delivery of quality outputs
  • Promote critical mass in health and medical research as part of the effective use of resources
  • Monitor and help ensure the financial sustainability of participating institutes.
