Westmead. Medical research funding crisis

The Westmead Millennium Institute is hoping to help prevent the federal government’s proposed plan to axe funding to medical research by $400 million. WMI researchers and scientists will join nationwide rallies today to protest against this massive cut to the National Health and Medical Research Council’s budget. The institute is one of Australia’s leading medical research institutes and has grown rapidly over the last decade. Funding cuts would be a significant blow to the institute that is currently in planning stages for a new building.
