Dr James Fernando awarded Early Career Research Grant

Congratulations to Dr James Fernando for being successfully awarded an Early Career Research Grant for 2021.

The Grant will award James with $34,920 for his project titled Development of a Novel Biomimetic for Prevention of Dental Disease. The funding is especially significant given the way COVID has impacted ECR careers this year.

The Early Career Research Scheme intends to support early career researchers who show a high degree of research potential to progress their research careers. The scheme provides competitive funding for pilot research projects and assists researchers in establishing their research programs.
