The funds will be used to buy new equipment, upgrade infrastructure, improve technology, build on existing resources and employ more researchers and support staff. The funding is being managed by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and is part of the "Backing Australia's Ability Building Our Future through Science and Innovation" programme. Since 1999 Australia has significantly increased investment in health and medical research. It estimates that by the end of the year Aus$500m will have been spent.
