PA Research Foundation Translational Research Innovation Awards
The PA Research Foundation are accepting expressions of interest (EOI) for the newly created Translational Research Innovation Awards.
The 2018 Awards are seeking submissions for projects with a translational focus and a vision of up to 5-10 years. $100,000 for the first year will be provided to each successful project across five (5) research areas.
This new funding model will allow the Foundation to take a more donor directed approach in the distribution of grants; our donors want to fund the most innovative and ground-breaking research leading to improved patient care in preferred areas, our new Awards will help facilitate this.
The Foundation already has an impressive track record of supporting innovation and transformational research. Through our new Awards, we will continue to invest funds in research that is innovative, novel and will give us the best opportunity of supporting the next big medical discovery or transformational health care project.
We invite collaboration across multidisciplinary and/or multi-institutions and seek to initiate new projects and develop ideas that deviate from established lines of investigation.
EOI's will be assessed on the novelty of the project, quality and feasibility, understanding of translation and track record of the team.
Applications close 5PM Friday 13 October.
