AIFA is the only Australasian charity that is specifically funding allergy and immunology research.
Over the past six years AIFA has funded research for new treatments and better diagnosis that lead to improved health outcomes for people with allergy and other immune disease. This includes early career researchers and pilot projects that have progressed to gain funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
Projects are awarded AIFA grants after a rigorous selection process, reviewed by a panel of leading experts.
An AIFA progress report has revealed that there is a significant unmet need for more allergy and immunology research funding.
Call for Research Knowledge Gap submissions by NHMRC
The NHMRC has made a call for “community and professional groups to submit research topics that may be underfunded or have a significant research knowledge gap”. Submissions are due by 5 February 2021. This is an opportunity to highlight the need for more allergy and immunology research in Australia.
Thank you to the overwhelming generosity of many ASCIA members who have donated to AIFA research grants whilst paying their annual membership fees this year, and to all who have helped and supported AIFA over the last six years.
We are fundraising with a mission to reach a cumulative total of at least $500,000 in AIFA research grants by the end of this year.
We wish you all a healthy, happy and successful 2021.
