2018 PdCCRS RESEARCH  PRIORITIES

Cure Cancer Australia grant applicants are advised to consider the following research priorities in their applications:

Priority One: General Priorities (Categories B and C Applicants Only):

  • Project grants will be awarded in any field of research (including basic laboratory, epidemiology, psychosocial, translational, and clinical) into malignant disease;
  • Cure Cancer Australia aims to provide ‘start-up’ funding to support post-doctoral researchers with less than seven years post-doctoral or less than seven years post-MBBS experience at the time of application;
  • We select for leadership and innovation as well as scientific excellence, therefore the applicant must nominate themselves as sole Chief Investigator of their project. This assists early-career researchers to advance their research and to increase their competitiveness for funding from other granting agencies in the future. Please note that this funding cannot be used as part of a larger PdCCRS project grant application.

Priority Two: Bioinformatics for cancer research (Category D applicants only)

  • Project grants will be awarded in the field of bioinformatics* for cancer research:     
    *bioinformatics is defined as the analysis of biological information, using computers and statistical techniques, to accelerate and enhance cancer research including research related to genomes, proteomes, three-dimensional modeling of biomolecules and biologic systems.
