The Cancer Institute NSW and Cancer Council NSW have agreed to fund world-class translational research in NSW through a joint call for Translational Program Grant (TPG) applications. Offering a joint funding opportunity will minimise the workload for the cancer research community and make more funding available for the program grants.

The TPG provides five year funding to support multi-disciplinary approaches to cancer research that will rapidly translate research discoveries into clinical programs and policy.  Funding is to a maximum of $750,000 per annum x 5 years per application.

Applications are open to members of the Translational Cancer Research Centres.

There will be a two-stage application process: Expression of Interest (EOI) and full proposals. Applications for the 2019 Translational Program Grant Round will be submitted via the Institute's online grants management system (GMS) at:

Applications will be peer reviewed and considered by the Institute's Grant Review Committee before applications are recommended as fundable to the Institute and Cancer Council.

The successful grant will be separately managed by each funder. The successful grantees will be notified under a media embargo.
