Our Research Funding Program provides opportunities for support at every step of a cancer researcher's career.
There is increasing recognition of the benefits of involving community members (sometimes referred to as consumers) in all parts of the research process, including the allocation of research funding. Effective community involvement in our research funding decisions can help to provide a broader perspective to our decisions, improve accountability to our donors, ensure the research we fund is relevant to the WA community and improve how the results of the research are communicated to the wider community.
