Arthritis Australia National Research Program 2014
Applications for 2015 funding will open May 2014. More details to follow.
Along with education and assistance, Arthritis Australia spearheads the effort to further our knowledge of arthritis and to search for cures. Much of our work is directed toward raising funds to provide grants, fellowships and scholarships. Associate Professor Michelle Leech is the Medical Director of Arthritis Australia and Professor Graeme Jones is the Chair of the Arthritis Australia Research Grants Assessment Committee.
Arthritis Australia conducts an annual research grants program open to both national and international researchers, and funds the chair of rheumatology at the University of Sydney.
As well as our national research program, some of our state affiliate offices provide financial support for local research projects and academic rheumatology initiatives. These include the Chair of Rheumatology at Queensland University and the University of Western Australia and, senior lecturer position at Sydney's Westmead Hospital.
