Translational Program Grant

Partnership with Cancer Institute NSW to fund translational research

Cancer Council NSW and Cancer Institute NSW are collaborating to fund world-class translational research in NSW. 

Research will provide the evidence to drive rapid improvements in cancer prevention, treatment and subsequently survival and quality of life for cancer patients in NSW. 

The Translational Program Grant provides five year funding to support multi-disciplinary approaches to cancer research that will rapidly translate research discoveries into clinical programs and policy.  This may include programs which focus on the relevance of a biological discovery in human cancer risk, early detection, screening, prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and/or treatment or the translation of known effective treatments into clinical practice across the system by developing a program of practice-based research and dissemination or implementation research. 

Funding is to a maximum of $750,000 per annum x 5 years per application.

Applications are open to members of the Translational Cancer Research Centres.

One Translational Program Grant each will be awarded by Cancer Council NSW and Cancer Institute NSW in 2020 with total funding up to $3.75 million for each award.
