The Royal Melbourne Hospital's commitment to research is demonstrated through the provision of a contestable research funding program supporting innovative and translatable medical research to enhance the care of our patients. 

Please note: The MH Research Funding Program is currently on pause. The grant round held late 2019 is on hold until further notice. We will advise current applicants when this status changes.


With the exception of the travel grants, applicants must submit a research proposal which includes the rationale for the project; study aims and objectives; design and methodology; expected outcomes and significance.
