January 2015

The Federal Government agency, Cancer Australia, is calling for applications for its 2015 round of the Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme.

The funding scheme helps to:

  • fund research in tumour areas that place a high burden of disease on the Australian community
  • fund cancer research projects that directly relate to the identified priorities of Cancer Australia and/or its funding partners
  • fund research that can directly improve cancer outcomes by influencing clinical practice, policy and/or care.

As one of the scheme’s funding partners, Cancer Council Australia is supporting research addressing inequalities in cancer care and outcomes. Further details on this year’s research priorities through the scheme, including those funded by other organisations can be found online here.

For more information on applying and key dates, please see the Cancer Australia website.
