The Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) seeks to support all aspects of cancer control (i.e. prevention, early detection, treatment and/or management) through research, with a focus on providing single capital grants for major items of scientific equipment, and for new research infrastructure.
The ACRF funds cancer research under the following categories:
- Capital Works
- Major equipment grants
- Highly specialised reagents / standards / etc., that are essential for the operation of the equipment to be purchased in support of the detailed cancer research program. This must be a minor (<25%) part of the project budget.
Grant Applications for amounts between $1.5m and $5m are sought.
Applications describing collaborative research programs between institutions are strongly encouraged.
Please refer to the Guidelines for eligible persons & groups.
