Medical Research Future Fund: Stem Cell Therapies Mission Roadmap

Closed 8 Nov 2019

Opened 1 Oct 2019


As part of the 2019-20 budget the Government announced a commitment of $150 million, over 10 years, for a comprehensive research effort focussing on stem cells. 

The funding, awarded under the Government’s landmark Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF), will support Australian researchers to make game-changing discoveries, develop a global biotech industry and enable the implementation of changes in healthcare.

Why your views matter

The Stem Cell Therapies Mission Roadmap will assist in the implementation of the Mission, including setting key priorities for funding.

A clear and well-focused Roadmap will ultimately increase the success of the Mission and the ability to attract co-investment from other funding sources. A series of consultation questions are proposed to guide your feedback on the Roadmap.
