This DSI Collaboration grant leverages: (1) A WA Defence Science Collaboration Grant ($150k). The WA DSC grant $150k is to do the linked antimicrobial work and not coming to Monash. (2) A successful TIA voucher (applied for by UWA colleagues) which links to this to provide another $50k which is also somewhere in the system.
