The announcement today of $750,000 in funding for the ClinTrial Refer Australia app project will boost the recruitment of patients to clinical trials Australia-wide.

This funding will allow ClinTrial Refer Australia to develop a new IT platform to integrate derivative apps; create one combined database; enable electronic referrals; link to Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry (ANZCTR); and build a national solution to clinical trials recruitment.  

MTP Connect* – the Medical Technologies and Pharmaceuticals Industry Growth Centre – has announced $375,000 funding for the project over two years, with matched provisional funding of $375,000 coming from the sector.
