Medical Research Support Program

The Medical Research Support Program is the NSW Government’s leading program for health and medical research investment.

The Medical Research Support Program is the NSW Government’s flagship infrastructure funding program for eligible independent medical research institutes across NSW. The program provides support for the indirect costs of research based on success in competitive National Health and Medical Research Council grant schemes.

The Medical Research Support Program aims to:

  • Support excellence in health and medical research through the delivery of high-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.

The program supports the growth of a sustainable and highly productive medical research sector in NSW. Through this investment, NSW Health aims to attract and retain the best researchers, and support the state’s capacity to deliver world class medical research.

Applications for the 2024–2028 round of the Medical Research Support Program are now open.
