Sax Institute CEO Professor Sally Redman spoke to The Australian about the recently announced strategy for the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF).

The Australian article says the $20 billion MRFF would favour efforts to improve systems and structures, rather than pursue any single cure or miracle therapy, in an attempt to maximise the impact of health spending in Australia.

“We’re seeing growing recognition of the need for researchers, service providers and policymakers to work in partnership to identify critical questions and undertake research,” Professor Redman says.

“We’ll get smarter research that can make a bigger impact on the health system.”
