Release of translational research priorities for 2022–24


The Victorian Department of Health has developed a set of translational research priorities to define research objectives for the next two years that align with the department’s operational priorities.

Researchers and members of the Victorian community helped identify nine departmental translational research priorities that aim to improve population and public health, health service delivery and system capability.

The department’s translational research priorities support research that:

  • addresses disparity or need, and is inclusive of different priority cohorts, groups and communities
  • considers sex and gender differences
  • is person-centred
  • is collaborative across different disciplines
  • considers how its findings can be translated into policy and practice.

For more information, or to register interest in partnering with the Department of Health, contact the Health and Medical Research team at

Applications for the Victorian Medical Research Acceleration Fund are also open until 4pm on 22 November 2022. The $2 million Public Health and Health Inequalities Stream encourages applications that align with the departmental research priorities. Find out more on the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions website.
