The AAMRI Members Report: Snapshot of Australia’s Medical Research Institutes (MRIs)

AAMRI Member Survey & Report

 

As the peak body for medical research institutes (MRIs) across Australia, AAMRI captures a snapshot of its member MRIs through a biennial survey. Since 2011, AAMRI has collected data from its member medical research institutes (MRIs) on their workforce, revenue & expenditure, success in competitive grant schemes (e.g. NHMRC) and research outputs and translation activities.

The 2018 AAMRI Members Report, Australia’s Medical Research Institute Snapshot, was released on 14th September, 2018 and summarises the key findings from the 2017 survey.  The report’s key findings are summarised below.

For information about AAMRI’s member institutes, please see our member page.
