MicroscopeAMDF Booster Grants

AMDF is excited to make funds available to exceptional research into mitochondrial disease (mito) as part of its new Medical and Research Funding Strategy. This has been made possible by the fundraising efforts of the foundation, including The Bloody Long Walk National Series.

AMDF Booster Grants offer an exciting opportunity for those whose research was deemed of a high quality by the NHMRC but were unsuccessful in securing funding. In addition to providing up to $75,000 worth of funding, Booster Grants may assist in securing future NHMRC funding.

Funding Round
The next funding round will be opened after the NHMRC funding announcement in 2018. Please check back for updates.

Projects must meet the following to be eligible:

  • Must be focused on primary mitochondrial disease
  • Applicant must be willing to share their original application and review from NHMRC
  • Project must have received a score of 4.5 from NHMRC
  • Project Chief Investigator must have a position at an Australian institute

Projects will be assessed on the following criteria:

  • Impact and benefit to the mitochondrial disease community
  • Contribution to diagnosis, treatment & prevention of mitochondrial disease
  • The NHMRC score
