Petition for medical research

12,140 signatures: Save Health and Medical Research Funding petition

A petition signed by almost 14,000 people in support of maintaining government funding of medical research was tabled in parliament by Federal Member for Melbourne, Mr Adam Bandt MP, on Wednesday 6 July, 2011.

The petition was developed in response to Cabinet leaks that suggested $400 million was to be cut from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) budget. Signatures were gathered from all across Australia, calling on the Government to protect medical research from funding cuts in the 2011-12 budget.

Thank you to everyone who took action and signed the petition.
