The Beat Cancer Project is a joint initiative of Cancer Council SA, SA Health, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), the University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia.
Applications are accepted via the National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Project Grant funding process. Visit the NHMRC website for information about applying and for access to RGMS.
Funding & Duration
Research Project Grants will generally be up to $100,000 for one year. Grants are not a source of ongoing salary funding for senior career scientists and will not fund the salary of a Chief Investigator.
Funding will generally not fund the salary of Chief Investigator A (CIA). Salary requests for CIB, CIC, CID etc will be permitted provided the salary is not being requested to support someone who is a group leader or head of laboratory.
Applicants ineligible to apply for NHMRC Project Grant funding are still entitled to apply via the NHMRC process for Beat Cancer Project funding.
Applicants need to adhere to Beat Cancer Project eligibility criteria as well as that of the NHMRC if they are applying for funding from both organisations. These are available on their respective websites.
Eligible applications may come from across the research spectrum including clinical, health-services and population-health and biomedical research. Public health researchers are encouraged to apply.
