The Mito Foundation is excited to make funds available to high quality research into mitochondrial disease (mito) as part of its Medical and Research Funding Strategy. This has been made possible by the fundraising efforts of the foundation, including The Bloody Long Walk National Series.
Mito Foundation Booster Grants offer an exciting opportunity for researchers whose Ideas Grant application was deemed of high quality by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) but was unsuccessful in securing funding. Mito Foundation Booster Grants provide up to A$100,000 worth of funding to progress a portion of research into mito as proposed in an NHMRC Ideas Grant application and boost the chances of success of a subsequent re-application to NHMRC.
