National Health and Medical Research Council Information

The NHMRC administers funding for health and medical research on behalf of the Australian Government. NHMRC funding supports research across the full spectrum of health and medical research, from basic science through to clinical, public health and health services research.

NHMRC's Grants Management System - RGM: All applications for NHMRC funding are submitted via the Research Grant Management System (RGMS). RGMS is a program and portfolio management (PPM) system that enables you to apply for, track and administer NHMRC grants online, as well as participate in peer review.  Researchers can also maintain a profile and curriculum vitae on RGMS, which is used for application and other administrative purposes.

Applications should be peer-reviewed. An application will only be accepted by Research Services if it has been reviewed by a senior colleague recommended by the College Associate Dean (Research), unless the ADR  has waived this requirement. Peer review (or waiver) sign-off is required in the NHMRC Funding Cover Sheet to be submitted along with your application.

To assist with completing your application

Up-to-date information on schemes and timings is broadcast through NHMRC Tracker, their fortnightly e-news service.  To subscribe to the NHMRC Tracker, send an email to nhmrc.media@nhmrc.gov.au.
