Abstract: Over the past few years NHMRC has reviewed the structure of its research funding and has reformed its grant program. The changes aim to encourage greater creativity and innovation in research and minimise the burden on researchers of application and peer review so that researchers can spend more time producing high quality research. The new grant program reflects the philosophy that health and medical research is best supported by a diverse portfolio of schemes.The new NHMRC program will now comprise of four funding streams. The first of these will open later this year, for funding commencing in 2020. This seminar will present the new scheme structure and explain some of the key changes expected for NHMRC schemes moving forward. The seminar will also present information on the changes to the NHMRC online system
