$4 million to increase Medical Research in Bass


A re-elected Morrison Government will invest $4 million to increase medical research in northern Tasmania, which will benefit all Australians.

Federal Member for Bass, Bridget Archer, has announced $4 million for capital works to relocate the Clifford Craig Foundation and refit the 1300 square metre site on the first floor of the Northern Integrated Care Service building.

“I have been working with the Clifford Craig team on this vision for medical research for several years and share their passion to establish a dedicated health research and innovation centre,” Mrs Archer said.

“I have been advocating for this type of investment in our region as part of my plan for Bass. This investment will expand the capacity to translate health research into improved practice and patient outcomes in rural and regional Tasmania.

“It will also assist in recruiting, retaining and training medical specialists and high-calibre health professionals for our region.

“This investment will deliver tangible results by securing the future of this iconic foundation and supporting its work in solving complex health puzzles that will have long-term impacts for generations to come.”

The Morrison Government has invested record funding in medical research, delivering breakthrough advances in treatments and cures and creating more jobs in our world class medical and biotechnology sector.

Only the Morrison Government will continue to deliver a better future for Bass as part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
