$500,000 seed funding and 6 PhD scholarships now available at MIME - call to ALL clinicians

The Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME) fosters stronger collaborations between clinical researchers in Monash partner hospitals and engineering and IT researchers.  Our aim is to develop new medical technologies that address significant unmet clinical needs.

Two funding sources are now available from MIME to support collaborative research projects involving a clinician researcher from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences and a researcher from the Faculty of Engineering or IT:

(i) MIME seed fund - between $10,000 and $50,000 for collaborative projects delivering an outcome in 12-18 months
(ii) MIME PhD scholarships - for jointly supervised projects

PLEASE NOTE: the MIME Affinity meeting scheduled for this Thursday 18 June at MMC has been postponed.  It will be rescheduled after expressions of interest for projects have been received.

We are asking clinicians to nominate areas of clinical need / opportunity via this form by 29 June.
Selected clinical areas will be advertised on the MIME website on Monday 6 July.

In July, engineering, IT and other researchers will be invited to respond to these areas of clinical need with a proposed technical solution - applications will close 31 July

In August, MIME will assist with the optimisation of final joint proposals. Announcement of successful applicants on 28 August.
