The CRT (2009) is establishing The Grant to support, energise and fund collaborative Cancer Research in Western Australia (WA). The Grant or Grants will provide support for teams of high calibre researchers to pursue broad based, multi-disciplinary cancer activities, to increase the inter-institutional collaboration of cancer researchers in WA and to increase their competitiveness for State, National and International cancer research funding.
The purpose of The Grant will be to enable a multi-disciplinary group of researchers with established track records to collaborate and generate new and important knowledge for cancer treatment and control. Applications that involve the recruitment of senior researchers (preferably from outside WA), as well as more junior researchers (with the clear potential to become research leaders), who are committed to relocating to, or working for a substantial part of their time in, WA, will be encouraged.
- To drive the next generation of improvements in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer through supporting world-class innovative and collaborative research.
- To support world-class cancer research capability in WA, with a focus on sustainability, longevity and continuity.
Key features of The Grant will be to create an environment for successful research collaborations, building capacity and speed up the clinical translation of new knowledge into better detection, management and treatment.
