Watch a recent presentation by Prof Melissa Little, Strategic Review of Health & Medical Research panelist and Stem Cells Australia member, where she outlines the Panel's findings. The Panel's final report was presented to the Minister for Health, the Hon Tanya Plibersek, on 28 February 2013.

Panel Chair, Mr Simon McKeon recently noted that "The Health & Medical Research sector is, in our opinion, ready to be 'embedded' centrally into the wider health sector so that that sector's long-term effectiveness can be significantly increased. The result will not only be the continued improvement in the physical health of the nation but, importantly, its economic wellbeing as well."

We look forward to seeing the Australian Government's response to the Panel's recommendations later in 2013.
