Funding boost for Queensland clinical research

Eight clinical scientists in Queensland will share about AU$4 million to study fields including cardiovascular and respiratory disease, cancers, the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, medical radiation, nursing and midwifery, and maternal child health over five years, the government announced.

One of the aims of the fellowships is to improve patient outcomes.

“Investing in medical research helps attract the best and brightest clinicians to Queensland, as well as providing development opportunities to help retain those already working here,” Geoff Wilson, the health secretary, said in a statement on 16 February.
