Congratulations to the successful applicants!
And thank you to everyone who applied. De-identified reviewer feedback has been provided to the research applicants and we hope this will be helpful when submitting applications in future rounds.
Thank you to the WA Department of Health for continuing to provide funding for vital research that will significantly improve those affected by the impacts of neurotrauma.
And finally, thank you to our team of peer reviewers, whose generous assistance in this process is invaluable.
Best of luck to all of our neurotrauma researchers!
