The ACRF is very excited to have received 14 grant applications from research teams and collaborations all around Australia, applying for between $1.5 and $5 million in ACRF research funding.
Every year the ACRF provides major grants to help cutting-edge cancer research institutes develop state-of-the-art facilities, and purchase advanced equipment that speed up cancer discoveries.
No other private research funding body in Australia provides grants as large as these; grants which are designed to fund research with the power to make significant breakthroughs in cancer diagnosis and treatment.
All applications for grants are 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 12 November this year.
