The Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) is an ongoing research fund set up by the Australian Government in 2015. MRFF operates several funding schemes that address national health priorities. MRFF schemes are released throughout the year and there is a need for groups to be agile and ready to submit applications as and when programs are announced.

Professor Della Forster, from the Judith Lumley Centre, along with Professor Helen McLachlan and Dr Touran Shafiei, was recently awarded a $1.2m from the MRFF - 2020 Maternal, First 2000 Days and Childhood Health scheme to undertake a multi-centre randomised controlled trial exploring the impact of midwife-led group antenatal care and education on caesarean section rates and infant health.

In this workshop the La Trobe grants team will set the MRFF context and describe how La Trobe can support applications. Della will then discuss and reflect on the stages – pilot feasibility work, understanding the literature, building a team, clinical/industry partnerships, demonstrating feasibility, consumer engagement – that her team went through in developing a successful MRFF application.
