...have come together in partnership to fund collaborative, competitive research led by early to mid-career cancer researchers.

In April 2021, four Collaborative Cancer Grants of $50,000 - $65,000 were awarded to early-to-mid career researchers to fund projects that involve collaboration across at least three institutions in WA.

The Collaborative Cancer Grant Scheme: Repechage Round is an opportunity for early-to-mid career researchers to apply for funding for one grant related to the implementation of the WA Cancer Plan 2020-2025 "Priority Two: Western Australians receive optimal care".

To be eligible for funding, a research project MUST support one of the two strategy areas described:

a) Priority Two, Strategy 1: Implement Optimal Care Pathways to guide the delivery of consistent, safe, high quality and evidence-based care;
b) Priority Two, Strategy 4: Actively engage primary and community care practitioners as key care providers across the cancer pathway (for the CCGS, particularly in the area of management of the long-term effects of cancer and healthy lifestyle behaviours relevant to cancer survivors).
