Health Research Council Announcements

The HRC supports research that has the potential to improve health outcomes and the delivery of health-care, and also to produce economic gains for New Zealand.

It allocates the majority of its funds through an annual allocation to independent research projects that are researcher initiated, and NPM Principal and Associate Investigators have enjoyed success in this years round.
