To help support Australians living with and recovering from a traumatic brain injury, the government has launched the latest round of the traumatic brain injury grants.
Medical research is the best hope of discovering better diagnosis and treatments to help Australians with brain injuries and this $4 million grant opportunity will boost research in this field.
The funding will support research projects to improve care for people with a traumatic brain injury as well as prevent and treat sports-related concussion.
The grants will be available in two streams.
This funding is part of the Traumatic Brain Injury Mission. The Mission, a research funding program under the Australian Government’s $20 billion Medical Research Future Fund, is investing $50 million over 10 years from 2019–20 to improve the lives of patients with traumatic brain injury.
The Government has also released the Traumatic Brain Injury Mission Roadmap and Implementation Plan.
