Our competitive grants program is designed to accelerate the translation of research discoveries directly into clinical practice. Since 2004 we have invested more than $170 million to enhance research capacity in NSW.
The aim of our research program is to ensure NSW remains at the
cutting-edge of cancer research and that we continue to attract the
best and brightest researchers to our State.
We also want to assist NSW researchers to access Commonwealth
research funding wherever possible.
All funding is awarded on a competitive basis through interstate
independent peer review.
Previous grants funded by program stream
Funding available from the Cancer Institute NSW Competitive
Grants Program is offered in five streams aimed at improving the
capacity and effectiveness of the NSW cancer sector... more >
The Cancer Institute NSW initiated the research infrastructure
program because it was recognised that the availability of research
infrastructure is vital to ensuring that cancer research capacity
and quality continues to expand in NSW.
The broad aim of the Career Support Program is to build capacity
for Cancer Research in NSW by attracting new cancer researchers to
NSW and supporting existing researchers to become more skilled and
more internationally competitive.
The translation of research discoveries into public benefit has
become a focus for many research funding agencies and is
particularly relevant for the Cancer Institute with a core aim of
impacting upon population health.
Cancer Institute NSW, in collaboration with the Cancer Council
NSW, supports clinical trials by providing the funding for
resources, infrastructure and personnel to trial units and research
institutions across NSW.
We promote innovation amongst cancer health networks through our
business improvement strategy projects and
Health Service Innovation Grants.
