NHMRC / A*STAR Joint Grant Call for Research - Utilising Integrative Technologies to Combat Emerging Infectious Disease

Please note the information on this page has been provided for historical reference purposes only.

In September 2011, Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Biomedical Research Council (A*STAR) and National Health and Medical Research Council, (NHMRC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) of general cooperation to promote and encourage research and development activities amongst researchers from Singapore and Australia.

A*STAR and NHMRC determined that research into the use of integrative technologies, including bioinformatics, genomics (computational genomics, evolutionary genomics, functional genomics) and proteomics, to combat emerging infectious disease was a mutually benefit topic for the first joint grant call under the MoU.

A*STAR and NHMRC allocated a total of up to SGD$4.5M/AUD$3.5M to support up to six collaborative research projects for up to three years duration. The amount funded for each project will be between SGD$500k/AUD$390k - SGD$1M/AUD$780k.
