Cancer Australia Grants – Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS)

The Leukaemia Foundation is a funding partner of Cancer Australia – an Australian Government agency that provides grants through its Priority-driven Collaborative Cancer Research Scheme (PdCCRS).

Researcher marking a sample

This partnership ensures research supported by the Leukaemia Foundation is high quality and all Australian researchers have the opportunity to apply and receive Leukaemia Foundation research funding.

The PdCCRS funds projects in areas where research priority has been identified by Cancer Australia and its funding partners.

As a funding partner, the Leukaemia Foundation sets its own research priorities and the categories to be funded in each funding round.

Recent Leukaemia Foundation qualitative research identified the need for ‘early career researchers’ to have access to funding opportunities. These are emerging academics who have been awarded a doctoral degree or other postgraduate qualification in the last five years.

Nurturing ‘early career’ medical researchers is critical to discovering better and safer blood cancer treatments and keeping the most promising and exciting talent in Australia.

Our research investment supports post-doctoral researchers with 1-3 years post-doctoral experience or post-MBBS qualifications; and post-doctoral researchers with 4-7 years post-doctoral experience or post-MBBS qualifications.

Details about the 2023 PdCCRS grant opportunity will be available in early 2023 on GrantConnect.
