UNSW awarded over $8m in funding for health and medical research

Projects led by UNSW Sydney researchers will share more than $8 million in federal government funding for life saving medical research.

UNSW researchers received two Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) grants for clinical trials that will investigate safer and more efficient ways to use existing, high-cost medicines. Funding was also awarded to a project investigating a new treatment of spinal cord injury neuropathic pain, and a project developing an artificial intelligence system to detect epidemics early.
