National Breast Cancer Foundation: Ovarian and Breast Cancer Research Collaboration Initiative
The OCRF is proud to announce, in partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), that we are again offering the opportunity for researchers to apply for the ovarian and breast cancer research collaboration initiative. The total funding available is AUD$1 million over 3 to 5 years which will fund one or two research projects.
The goal of this funding opportunity is to tackle and answer the most critical clinical questions affecting women diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer, with the potential to transform the clinical management of these conditions by delivering high impact patient outcomes significantly faster than existing funding mechanisms. Proposed research projects must span both breast and ovarian cancer to be eligible.
APPLICATIONS FOR THIS SCHEME HAVE NOW CLOSED.
