Grant success for our innovative ideas

We’re thrilled to congratulate a collection of our Kolling Institute researchers who have won highly-competitive National Health and Medical Research Council grants for innovative investigations.

Professor Chris Little has been awarded close to a million dollars for his Ideas grant “Getting to the Heart of Osteoarthritis”, which hopes to reduce osteoarthritis associated cardiovascular disease risk.

Professor Little and Dr Cindy Shu from the Raymond Purves Bone and Joint Research Lab will collaborate on the novel study with Kolling heart disease researcher Dr Anastasia Mihailidou and Professor Anthony Ashton from the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research in the USA.

We’d also like to congratulate musculoskeletal researcher Dr Jillian Eyles who has received a prestigious $660,000 Investigator grant to develop strategies to promote best-practice for osteoarthritis care.

The significant grants reflect the expertise of our Kolling Institute researchers in musculoskeletal and heart disease, and recognise their consistent research impact and influence.
