- Victorian Cancer Survivorship Program: Phase 2 Grants Scheme
This Victorian Cancer Agency Translational Research Projects Funding Scheme sought proposals for stand-alone projects that would enable the translation of basic research discoveries into the clinic (ie early phase clinical translation (T1) Appendix 1).
In 2016, applications were sought with an emphasis on investigator-initiated development of new therapeutic approaches, for example immunotherapeutics, antibodies and small molecules informed by genomic/biomarker studies.
It was expected that proposals would be hypothesis-driven and able to demonstrate significant pre-clinical data to support their hypothesis.
An essential element of this scheme was to evaluate new therapeutics for the first time in the clinic. Therefore a Phase I clinical trial aimed to test a new therapeutic intervention for the first time in a small group of people (e.g. 20-80) to evaluate safety (e.g. to determine a safe dosage range and identify side effects) was a requirement.
The aims of the Victorian Cancer Agency Clinical Research Fellowships are to:
Clinical Research Fellowships are aimed at strengthening and supporting clinical cancer research. The purpose is to increase the pool of clinician researchers working directly on clinical problems. These groups can strongly influence the translation of cancer research into practice, and build local capacity in translational cancer research.
The Victorian Cancer Agency Mid-Career Research Fellowship Scheme is a new Scheme designed to support mid-career researchers undertaking high quality translational cancer research. The grant aims to support and retain talented individuals in the field of cancer research in Victoria.
The objectives of the Mid-Career Research Fellowships are to:
The objectives of the Early Career Seed Grants are to:
The Victorian Cancer Agency Early Career Seed Grants are designed to support early career researchers undertaking high quality translational cancer research. The grants provide limited seed funding to encourage and retain talented individuals in the field of cancer research in Victoria.
