Eight projects led by Macquarie University researchers have received a total of more than $7.3 million in Commonwealth health and medical research funding.  .

Five projects were funded under the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Ideas Scheme, two under the NHMRC Investigator Grants Scheme, and one under the NHMRC-EU Collaborative Research Grants Scheme.

A project led by Professor Bamini Gopinath from Macquarie University Hearing receives $660,737 over three years for ‘HearHealth: A co-designed online support service empowering consumers with hearing loss’. Hearing loss affects one in seven adult Australians and is the third most common cause of disability globally. This study involves the co‑design of HearHealth, a novel online support service, in conjunction with Deafness Forum Australia (the peak body for people with hearing loss) and Google. HearHealth will provide access to credible, consumer-friendly educational materials and resources, facilitate improved perspective of hearing health needs and hearing loss risk factors, and promote behaviour change via online self-assessment and tailored care plans. Partners in this project include Curtin University, University of Sydney and University of Wollongong.
