Priority-driven collaborative cancer research – standard project grants

Cancer Australia and its Funding Partners are pleased to announce their research priorities for the 2020 round of the PdCCRS.

This funding scheme helps to:

  • fund research in tumour areas that place a high burden of disease on the Australian community;
  • fund cancer research projects that directly relate to the identified priorities of Cancer Australia and/or its Funding Partners; and
