NSW Premier visits NeuRA

The NSW Premier visited Neuroscience Research Australia today to deliver a cheque for $6 million to go towards capital works.

The grant will go towards fitting out NeuRA’s new seven-story building, including six floors dedicated to labs and clinical research. This facility will form part of the new Neuroscience Research Precinct.

“We want NSW to be at the cutting edge of medical research for decades to come – and that’s reflected in our record spending on infrastructure for the sector in this Budget,” Mr Barry O’Farrell said.

Minister for Health and Minister for Medical Research, Jillian Skinner, accompanied the Premier.

“Medical research is the lifeblood of human health, affecting every one of us from birth. It richly deserves support, which is why this Government has established the Office of Medical Research and is in the process of finalising NSW’s first 10 year health and medical research plan,” Mrs Skinner said.
