Translating Research into Practice Fellowship 2016

High-impact translational research is a key focus of Cure Brain Cancer's research strategy. The NHMRC/Cure Brain Cancer Translating Research into Practice (TRIP) Fellowship will provide an opportunity for a health professional to be part of making our mission a reality. 

Undertaking a translational research project in brain cancer and increasing the information flow between the lab and the clinic adds tremendous value to the understanding of both groups and will help to accelerate effective treatments for brain cancer.

Cure Brain Cancer requires acknowledgment in any publications or media relating to the supported research and requires a copy of any published articles arising from the supported research. Annual progress reports and financial acquittals will be required. Cure Brain Cancer may call upon fellows to provide assistance with publicity and other events to raise awareness of brain cancer and research. Fellowships may have additional conditions in relation to funding administered by Cure Brain Cancer.

To find out more about this Fellowship and to apply, please visit the NHMRC website. Remember to nominate Cure Brain Cancer on your application for co-funding.

Applications open 30 March 2016. 

Details from the NHMRC:

  • TRIP Fellowships provide support for health care professionals (e.g medical specialists, general practitioners, public health practitioners, physiotherapists, nurses, midwives, radiologists, and other allied health providers), health care personnel (health service managers, hospital department leaders, clinical trial managers) health systems personnel, health researchers and health policy makers to translate evidence into health care and public health improvements.
  • The Fellowships provide for 0.5 of a full time equivalent position and ensure time for Fellows to develop the range of skills needed for leadership in brain cancer research translation within their career.
  • TRIP Fellowships are not designed to support applicants already established as health care leaders. 

Postgraduate Scholarship 2016

Postgraduate Scholarships aim to support outstanding health and medical graduates early in their career so they can be trained to conduct research that is internationally competitive and develop a capacity for original independent brain cancer research within Australia.

Cure Brain Cancer Foundation will fund successful applicants to attain a brain cancer research based postgraduate degree (Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)). 

Please apply through the NHMRC website and remember to nominate Cure Brain Cancer on your application for co-funding. 

Applications open on 27 April 2016.
