Our competitive grants program is designed to accelerate the translation of research discoveries directly into clinical practice. 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.
