The Amuthan Medical Research Fund was established in 2013 in memory of Amuthan Annamalai, a Year 6 medical student at James Cook University who passed away on 25 January 2013. The objective of the fund is to improve the health of under-served populations in the tropics through medical research and community development in the fields of public health/health promotion, infectious diseases (especially typhoid and/or Dengue fever) and/or health services. The fund will support research that will lead to improved quality of life, health equity and excellence in clinical care for people living in the tropics.
Applicants must have been admitted to the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery at James Cook University; and be enrolled full-time (12 credit points per teaching period). Preference will be given to students in their second or third year of studies.
The bursary is valued at $1,800, for the purposes of a summer school research project.
