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 >

Research Infrastructure

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.

Career Support

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.

Translational research

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.

Clinical trials

Cancer Institute NSW supports clinical trials by providing the funding for  resources, infrastructure and personnel to trial units and research institutions across NSW.

Cancer services

We promote innovation amongst cancer health networks through our business improvement strategy projects and Health Service Innovation Grants.

Evidence to Practice Grant

The Evidence to Practice Grant provides annual funding to a wide range of stakeholders for projects that involve the implementation of evidence into practice in Cancer Plan 2011-2015 priority areas.  Priority areas for submissions will be provided annually.

Applications are currently closed. Applications for 2015 will open early next year.
