Stem Cell Grant Opportunity – Call for Applications

19 November 2018
Stem Cells Australia is calling for applications for targeted disease teams to translate stem cell research towards a specific clinical need. These will be considered for funding from SCA's new MRFF Accelerated Research - Stem Cells grant. 

In July 2018, SCA secured $3 million from the MRFF Accelerated Research - Stem Cells program to pilot the use of targeted disease teams to translate stem cell research towards a specific clinical need. This is the funding model SCA proposes to use in a future application for large scale support through the forthcoming MRFF Frontier Health & Medical Research Program.

Applications are now open for disease teams seeking support for translational research using stem cells. It is anticipated that two teams will be supported with up to $637,000 each, with funding to start in July 2019.

Full details of the application process and timeliness are available on the Stem Cells Australia website. 

Eligibility: The Disease Team Leader must have an appointment at one of the 14 partner organisations in Stem Cells Australia. Other participants in the disease team may come from Stem Cells Australia partner organisations or from other organisations.
