Cure Brain Cancer Foundation has announced the recipients of its new round of research grants, designed to meaningfully and quickly improve survival outcomes for people with brain cancer.
This incredible group of researchers have been hand-picked by an international panel of experts, and will dedicate the next two years to conducting potentially life-saving brain cancer research, with the aim of rapidly improving brain cancer survival
Two Early Career Fellowship Grants have been awarded to gifted scientists Dr Laura Genovesi at University of Queensland Institute for Molecular Bioscience (QLD) and Dr Ryan Cross at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research (VIC), while three Innovation Grants will help to fund the ground-breaking work of Dr Leonie Quinn at Australian National University (ACT), Associate Professor Nick Gottardo at Telethon Kids Institute (WA) and Dr Roberta Mazzieri at The University of Queensland (QLD).
This is Cure Brain Cancer Foundation's second million-dollar research investment in less than a month, and is part of the organisation’s $20 million commitment to the Australian Brain Cancer Mission – a Government-backed ten-year plan to fund vital research to double brain cancer survival and improve patients’ quality of life. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation’s investment in advocacy and awareness has directly resulted in this government backed, $100 million national plan.
These scientists will begin their promising brain cancer research projects in early to mid-2018.
INNOVATION GRANTS Cure Brain Cancer Foundation’s Innovation Grants will support researchers who have a track record of project success, no matter which field they have previously worked in. It will also enable researchers to produce proof-of-concept data, and establish whether ideas are feasible for ongoing funding and future grant applications.
