Accelerator research grants - National Breast Cancer Foundation

13 September 2013

The National Breast Cancer Foundation invites applications for its accelerator research grants. These enable research teams to further develop cancer research capacity and competitiveness in translational research.

The aim is to support projects that either:

  • aim to translate breast cancer research across the spectrum into the development of new methods for prevention, early-detection screening, diagnosis and therapy through trials, including supportive care, in the clinical or applied setting;
  • accelerate the transition of results from clinical studies into clinical practice, health policy or health decision making processes.

The lead applicant must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident, reside in Australia throughout the funding period and be actively engaged in research in Australia. There are no restrictions on individuals who may be named as associate investigators, however they are not eligible to receive any direct funds from the grant.

Grants may be used towards facilities and services, storage of biospecimen samples, patient or population research recruitment, treatment costs, development of resources, data collection costs and third party contractual services for preclinical activity.

 Up to AU$250,000 per year for up to five years
Closing date: 18 October 2013
