2024 Applications

Applications can be made through the Auckland Medical Research Foundation’s online portal.
Applications must be received by the AMRF via the portal by 5pm on the closing date.

Please note that your host institution may have earlier internal deadlines.
 

In 2024 the AMRF will not be calling for applications for the following grants: Ruth Spencer Medical Research Fellowship and the Douglas Robb Memorial Fund.

These dates may be subject to change, as could the types of applications we are able to offer. The AMRF will adhere to government guidelines when considering our response to any situations that may arise due to the pandemic.


Please check our website regularly to see if any changes have been implemented.

For enquires about submission dates and processes please read the guidelines. If you still have questions, contact AMRF's Research Programme Manager at hannah.gibbons@medicalresearch.org.nz or 09 923 1701.

AMRF makes a commitment to openness on the use of animals in health research.

The Auckland Medical Research Foundation recognises that animal research is essential for discoveries to improve the health and well-being of humans and makes vital contributions to understanding biological and disease processes. Some of the research projects funded by the Foundation may involve animals.  The Foundation is a signatory of the Openness Agreement on Animal Research and Teaching in New Zealand, developed by the Australian and New Zealand Council for the Care of Animals in Research and Teaching (ANZCCART). As a signatory we commit to better inform people about the use of animals in research through our website and communications.  We acknowledge our fellow signatories, which include research institutions that host AMRF-funded researchers and projects. It is a requirement of the Foundation that the institution or organisation that contracts any AMRF-funded researcher ensures research projects meet all current ethical codes and legislation concerning the use and welfare of animals in research  and including the legislatively required implementation of the Three Rs (replacement, reduction and refinement of animal use).
