Feast of funding for health research from gout to measles to critical care

The University of Auckland's medical faculty won a big share of the latest health research grants from the government.

New devices and drugs to prevent organ failure in critically ill patients are targeted in a $5 million project funded by the Health Research Council (HRC).

That project will see Professors John Windsor and Anthony Phillips, from the medical and science faculties respectively, working on treatments targeting the lymphatic system.

Two more projects in the medical faculty each get $5 million over five years from the HRC.
Professor Rod Jackson’s team will create an anonymised register of cardiovascular and related risks to help combat the likes of diabetes, gout, obesity and heart failure.
