"Big Data, Big Impact" Biometric grant


29 April 2013

The "Big Data, Big Impact" grant encourages the analysis of existing large publically mandated datasets of biometric and health data to unlock the answers to frontier questions in cancer research.

This grant from The Cancer Institute, NSW provides an opportunity for a research team to identify the potential within open access datasets.

Researchers can be drawn from any field of academic or clinical endeavour that is directly applicable or complimentary to cancer - computer science, bioengineering or similar may be highly relevant for this grant.

The successful team will receive a grant of $60,000 for stage 1 of their project, and up to $150,000 for stage 2 of their project.

Full details of the funding are contained in the guidelines (PDF).
