Title: MHIQ (HPS) Writing a Successful Grant Series

Abstract -

Having an NHMRC Investigator Grant is a goal for most contemporary health researchers. Investigator Grants consolidate separate fellowship and research support into one grant scheme that provides high-performing researchers at all career stages with funding for their salary and a significant research support package. These grants provide the investigator with flexibility to pursue important new research directions as they arise and to form collaborations as needed, rather than being restricted to the scope of a specific research project.

Associate Professor Lauren Ball was successful as an EL2 in the first round of the NHMRC Investigator grant scheme and has been on the grant review panel for the scheme each year since. Come and hear Lauren speak about how she prepared her application, tips and tricks about what reviewers want to see and how she is now managing the funding to progress her vision for research and impact.
