Clinical trials in mitochondrial disease (mito) are almost non-existent in Australia. The Mito Foundation is eager for more pharmaceutical companies to see Australia as a viable location to conduct clinical trials. For Australia to be a candidate for clinical trials, infrastructure must be in place. This may include venues and staff to run the trial, internet resources and bio-banking facilities.

Mito Foundation Clinical Trial Grants will be $75,000 per year for three years.
