Principles of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research and engaging meaningfully with community
The Targeted Translation Research Accelerator (TTRA) program, a Medical Research Future Fund initiative delivered by MTPConnect, will open Round 3 of its Research Projects funding opportunity in early 2023 to support diabetes and cardiovascular disease projects that address the unmet health and medical needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in rural, remote, regional, and urban centres.

A prioritisation project to determine the Indigenous-specific priority areas for this round is currently underway, led by the Lowitja Institute, a community-controlled organisation and Australia’s National Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research.

In anticipation of the round, MTPConnect is hosting a webinar to highlight key elements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research that potential applicants should consider early when building their projects and teams.

During this webinar, you will hear from three outstanding Indigenous researchers, all dedicated to ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research is conducted by community, for community with a long-lasting impact on health and wellbeing.

Speakers:
• Professor Alex Brown – Professor of Indigenous Genomics, Australian National University and Telethon Kids Institute
• Dr Michelle Kennedy – Executive Manager of Research and Knowledge Translation, Lowitja Institute
• Ray Kelly – Accredited Exercise Physiologist/Researcher and creator of ‘Too Deadly for Diabetes’

Duration: 1 hour
