What are the entry requirements for TRAM?

TRAM is open to all researchers from the University of Melbourne and the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct, along with their students and collaborators. If you're passionate about impact, we encourage you to get in touch and consider applying.

To be eligible, one of your team members must be affiliated with the University of Melbourne or a medical research institute that is part of the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct.

Which program should I apply for?

The TRAM journey spans four programs. We encourage all applicants to apply for TRAMx Bootcamp to get to know us (we love making new friends!) and plan their TRAM experience.

If you're further along your research impact journey, or are interested in research commercialisation, please get in touch to see if you're ready to apply for one of our more advanced programs and jump in a little deeper.
