MicroscopeMito Foundation Booster Grants

The Mito Foundation is excited to make funds available to exceptional research into mitochondrial disease (mito) as part of its new 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 those whose research was deemed of a high quality by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) but were unsuccessful in securing funding. In addition to providing up to $75,000 worth of funding, Mito Foundation Booster Grants may assist in securing future NHMRC funding.

In early January 2019, Professor David Thorburn said “The Mito Foundation Booster Grant was enormously helpful in bridging a funding gap. It allowed us to continue our research and put us in a better position to secure funding from the NHMRC the following year. We are now able to expand these studies over the next three years to define approaches that can maximise the diagnosis of mitochondrial disease, enabling patients to access specialist care sooner.”
