From their August Newsletter:
In March 2019, the Minister for Health the Hon Greg Hunt MP announced that the Federal Government would match the $500,000 that Rotary had raised with a further $500,000 from the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). This brings the total funds raised towards the malaria vaccine research at the Institute for Glycomics, Griffith University, to over $1million.
This encouraging announcement was followed by a formal application process that the Institute for Glycomics has now completed. As a result, a funding agreement between the Federal Government and the Institute for Glycomics was fully executed on 26 June. The $500,000 has been received by the Institute and the project is now underway! The much needed funds will go towards the salary of a Research Fellow and supporting two new students in the laboratory of Professor Michael Good.
This only became possible due to the persistence and very hard work of the Rotarians!
