Ways to support this work

This work is funded by the public via direct donations. There are three usual methods of donation depending on the needs of the donor.

Privacy and your donation

Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. For this reason unless I am given specific instructions about who a donor is and that you are happy for me to share publicly that you are a patron of my work I do not thank individual donors publicly.

Having said this, I believe that the best advertisement for my work is your support. It is much easier for people to believe others when they speak about the value of my work than when I make my own claims about it. Your willingness to share the reason you support my work is what inspires other people to support my work. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share that you do with your networks.

About this Project

With new Ministers announced regularly, this Commonwealth Grants project maps each Minister against the grants made during their tenure in any given position. A new Minister (or occasionally an entire Ministry) has been published on average every eight weeks since the beginning of the 2017-18 financial year (mid 2017). I've created a new dataset with these positions and dates to map both budget data (which operates on a financial year) and Commonwealth the grants that each agency claims are coming out of annual budget appropriations.

Portfolios are the administrative lines drawn between specific agencies and responsible Ministers. Each Portfolio administers specific agencies and those agencies can only spend funding appropriated through Parliament and documented in the Portfolio Budget Statements published on budget night or the MYEFO updates each December or Portfolio Additional Estimate Statements published in February.

Portfolio names change when Administrative Arragement Orders are made by the presiding government. This can change the portfolio to which an agency is attributed or the Minister responsible. The Prime Minister, Scott Morrison announced significant changes to the Portfolios and agencies they administed which came into effect on 1, February 2020.

At launch, only grants published since GrantsConnect went live in January 2018 are included in the data. This means that only one full financial year is covered in the data, with the 2019-20 financial year still unfolding at this point. Commonwealth grants data contains agency and program names as per the budget documents published in budget night. I have integrated these datasets despite the challenges posed by Administrative Arrangement Orders made after budget night. Given the intention of this project is to link grant decisions with resposnible Ministers, queries are based on the approval date in each grant notice as opposed to the publication date.

Publication date is based on start date of the grant and can vary substantially from the approval date. Grants are republished at a later date where variations have been made. If there is a significant time difference between grant approval and variation, different Ministers and governments can be responsible for those variations.

Commonwealth grants data has been published at GrantsConnect since Jan 2018 under the CC By 3.0 licence.

There are several dates in Commonwealth grants data: approval date, publication date, start-end dates and the budget/financial year from which each grant is appropriated. According to Department of Finance media, publication is required by the approving agency on GrantConnect 'no later than twenty-one calendar days after the grant agreement takes effect '.

The date of effect [start date] will depend on the particular arrangement. It can be the date on which a grant agreement is executed or a specified starting date. Where there is no grant agreement, the date of effect can be for example, the date of first payment or the announcement of a successful grantee.
The approval date for reporting purposes is the date that the decision-maker makes a decision to award a grant. Where, for example, negotiating a grant agreement takes some time, there may be a delay between the approval date and the date that the grant award information is published.

Where approval, publication and budget years vary significantly this is likely due to the grant being republished in a later year with a variation or delays in the start of the grant. Variation status and reason is not included in GrantConnect download data but is published at the source (GrantConnect) if you click on the button in the Grants tab.

In order to match with budget data, drill-down at this site is based on the financial year (year of budget appropriations) from which the grant was taken, not the year of grant publication. Budget year can vary from approval and publication years.

PurposeAlzheimer's disease manifests differently in different people. Some people may get the disease at younger ages or they may progress in the disease much faster than others. This grant aims to use large amounts of data from around the world to understand why these differences exist. This knowledge will be converted into a tool where data from a specific individual can be used to forecast if and when they will get the disease and how fast that disease will progress and how it could be prevented.

PurposeWe will use a Phase III trial to investigate if a next generation drug, tenecteplase, is more effective than the current standard of care at improving patient outcomes up to 24 hours of stroke onset. This trial is particularly important because it will extend the stroke treatment time window with thrombolysis from 4.5 hours to 24 hours, allowing more patients to be treated, particularly in regional areas where patients are often outside of the established time window for treatment.

PurposeDiabetes is a major problem for Indigenous Australians. Currently, monitoring blood sugar (glucose) levels through frequent painful fingerpricks is inconsistent. Flash glucose monitors are easy-to-use new devices worn on the arm that provide real-time blood glucose levels to guide treatment. We will study whether these monitors help Indigenous Australians to gain better understanding and control of their blood glucose to avoid complications like heart attacks and kidney failure.

PurposeVivax malaria is characterised by its tendency to recur weeks or months after the initial infection. These relapses are caused by dormant liver forms. The only available drug to treat them is primaquine, which can cause damage to red blood cells in some patients, so the drug is given at a low dose over a longer period of time resulting in low adherence. This trial explores other treatment options and will provide country programs evidence of their effectiveness.

PurposeIt is assumed that the majority of inherited genetic differences that affect a woman's risk of breast cancer act in breast cells by leading to uncontrolled cell growth. However, we hypothesise that some act in the immune system and alter a woman's ability to destroy cancer cells before they become clinically detectable. If this is correct, and we can identify some of the mechanisms involved in this process, it might be possible in future to reduce a woman's risk by modifying the immune system.

PurposeFor reasons that are not fully understood, changes in the way that the body or cell uses energy can lead to faster disease progression and earlier death in people living with motor neuron disease (MND). We now have exciting data to show that a drug used to treat heart failure in humans can slow disease in a mouse model of MND. In this project, we will investigate the ability to repurpose this drug for use in MND, with the view to generate data that will support Phase 1 or 2 trials for MND.

PurposeNot surprisingly, the two most complex ‘supersystems' of the body - nervous and immune - ‘talk' to each other. This project deals with how nerves ‘talk' to immune cells via what we term the ‘neuro-immune synapse'. Nobody has seen this in action, but we propose to do so. We will image the process in live anaesthetised mice with fluorescent nerves and immune cells engineered to give an optical signal when activated. We then plan to identify the neurons that drive this pathway.

PurposeBurns are one of the most painful injuries a person can sustain and survive. Unfortunately current treatments are still a long drawn out process relying heavily on wound dressings that need regular and painful changes and still result in horrific scarring and contractures. We have taken the novel approach to develop a systemic, injectable antibody therapy that heals wounds from the “inside out”. This ground breaking approach could be life changing for the many people who suffer extensive burns.

PurposeIn Australia, 8.5 percent of babies are born preterm (less than37 weeks) and 1.6 percent (greater than5,000 babies) are born very preterm (less than32 weeks). Complications from preterm birth account for 40 percent of neonatal deaths in Australia, and the care of those that do survive is a most serious and costly problem (AU$800 million/year) in neonatal medicine today. This study will characterise new steroid drugs to treat the respiratory complications of preterm birth but with reduced detrimental side-effects in organs such as the brain.

PurposeThis project will help us better understand what happens when viruses hijack host cell machinery to replicate and spread. It will investigate important structures called glycans, which are attached to viral and host proteins. Glycans help proteins maintain their shape and function and can also help viruses evade immune detection. By investigating alterations in proteins and the attached glycans during infection, it may highlight novel pathways that can be exploited as targets for therapeutics.

PurposeUsing a model of T cell pre-leukemia, we have seen that cells in the thymus engage in cell competition and that this is important for preventing cancer.

We aim to show the function of this gene is to maintain blood stem cell health, and prevent leukaemia, via a cell competition mechanism in the thymus and the marrow.
