Help protect soldiers against chemical, biological and radiological threats
Defence is calling for proposals from industry and research partners to take part in its national Medical Countermeasures program.
The call focuses on three priority themes:
- point of care diagnostics
- antimicrobial resistance
- security sensitive biological agents.
Supported by the Next Generation Technologies Fund, CSIRO and industry partners, the program is being managed by the Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC).
Proposals are also welcome for therapeutics against chemical threats, regional tropical diseases such as malaria and dengue fever, and alphaviruses.
Proposal summaries must be submitted by 4pm on 6 May 2019.
For more information see the DMTC Medical Countermeasures program.
