Independent Assessment Panel

To ensure that we are not influenced by popular trends or good marketing, we have established an Independent Assessment Panel to determine what funding applications we should support.
The panelists are made up of some of Australia’s leading scientists:
  • Associate Professor Rory Clifton-Bligh, Royal North Shore Hospital and Kolling Institute
  • Professor Tim Geraghty, Hopkins Centre Research for Rehabilitation and Resilience
  • Emeritus Professor Alan Mackay-Sim, Griffith University

In addition to the Independent Assessment Panel we have made arrangements with the Burwood Academy of Independent Living in Christchurch New Zealand for their consumer committee to review applications from the consumer perspective.  This committee, under the guidance of Dr Johnny Bourke, is well advanced in this activity and we are thrilled to be able to work with them to obtain consumer input into funding decisions.
