Australian Research Council (ARC)
QBI researchers were also awarded $1.69 million in ARC Discovery Project grants, $1.125 million in Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards (DECRAs), and an $800,000 injection for new equipment funded under the ARC’s Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) scheme. The recipients include:
- Professor Jürgen Götz
- Professor Joe Lynch
- Professor Pankaj Sah
- Associate Professor Stephen Williams
Drs Marta Garrido and Hong Sang Lee were recognised through the awarding of DECRAs.
Associate Professor Frederic Meunier and colleagues received $800,000 through the LIEF scheme to go towards a live molecular imaging machine using super resolution microscopy.
Despite our on-going success, the Institute is still heavily reliant on additional funding. QBI must match every dollar of grant funding with a further dollar to make research possible.
