Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, each year ACRF proudly awards high-impact grants. These major grants help cancer research teams develop state-of-the-art facilities, and purchase advanced equipment that has the power to speed up cancer discoveries and ultimately save lives.

ACRF is excited to announce we have received 11 grant applications from research teams and collaborations across Australia. Each team is applying for seed funding between $1.5 and $5 million.

No other private research funding body in Australia provides grants as large as these which are designed to fund research into cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

All applications for grants will now be considered and assessed according to the world-class standards of the ACRF’s Medical Research Advisory Committee (MRAC), a group of highly distinguished cancer scientists.

That committee, led by Professor Ian Frazer, will now go through a detailed review process of each application and will develop a short-list in coming months.

After further interviews, the MRAC will make recommendations to our Board and the final awardees will be publicly announced on 14 November this year.
