MRFF Action Group
The Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute has joined other peak bodies from Australia's health and medical research sector to form the MRFF Action Group, with Baker Institute Chair, Mr Peter Scott, leading this group.
The MRFF Action Group is promoting the ground breaking benefits the Medical Research Future Fund will bring to Australia's health and prosperity. The increase in medical research expenditure that will flow from the MRFF will underpin Australia's future as a world leader in the health industry.
The Baker Institute, as part of the MRFF Action Group, is advocating for the full realisation of the sovereign fund to the $20 billion proposed in the 2014–15 Federal Budget, which will then deliver $1 billion annually in health and medical research funding in perpetuity from 2022.
