Strategic Review of Health and Medical Research in Australia

Review Panel: Private Meeting 12

Update: 11 November 2012

The Panel of the Strategic Review of Health and Medical Research in Australia held its 12th private meeting in Melbourne on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 October 2012.

The Panel spent a considerable amount of time reviewing some 200 comments received from stakeholders in response to its summary Consultation Paper which was released on 3 October 2012.

The Panel is very grateful to have received such a broad variety of constructive feedback and will incorporate much of the feedback in its final report.

The Panel has now turned its full attention to producing its final report which will include recommendations for a 10-year national strategic health and medical research plan.

The Panel's next meeting is scheduled for early December 2012 in Sydney.
