Upcoming funding opportunities

These are just a few of the research grants that are currently open and available to surgeons.  Dr Daphne Vogiagis, Buisness Manager at the Alfred Department of Surgery, maintains a complete list of upcoming grants which will soon be available on our website.  She can be contacted by email Daphne.Vogiagis@monash.edu

NHMRC Partnership Project Grants

Up to $1.5M and up to 5 years

Closing Date:  23 November 2016 Minimum Data Requirement.  NHMRC external deadline: 7 December 2016.

Opportunities for researchers and policy makers to work together to define research questions, undertake research, interpret the findings and implement the findings into policy and practice. Partnership projects will answer a specific research question to influence health and well-being through changes in the delivery, organisation, funding and access to health services.


NHMRC Practitioner Fellowships
Closing Date: 1 February 2017 to MRO: 18 January 2017

Amount: Level 1 $133,703 per year, level 2 $160,389
These support active clinicians and public health or health services professionals in undertaking part-time research that is linked to their practice or policy. The aim is to support research which results in the translation of new evidence into improved clinical practice and health policy and which delivers improvements in health and healthcare to Australians.


NHMRC Research Fellowships

Closing Date: 1 February 2017 to MRO: 18 January 2017

Amount: $124,531 to $170,396
These fellowships support Australia’s medical and health research, and are available for researchers working in biomedical, clinical, public health and health services research areas. Full time and part time fellowships are available for a period of five years.


NHMRC Development Grants

Closing Date: 1 February 2017 to MRO: 18 January 2017

The Development Grants scheme provides financial support to individual researchers and/or research teams to undertake health and medical research within Australia at the proof of principle or pre-seed stage that specifically drives towards a commercial outcome within a five-year timeframe.

Early stage research or knowledge creation research (this is fundable through the NHMRC Project Grants scheme) will not be funded through the Development Grants scheme.

The Development Grants scheme supports the commercial development of a product, process, procedure or service that if applied, would result in improved health care, disease prevention or provide health cost savings.  Research supported by this scheme must have experimental data that supports a demonstrated proof of principle or pre-seed concept and have a detailed feasible commercialization strategy that takes into account the regulatory pathway, protectable IP, commercial barriers and potential routes to market.
