NHMRC – California Institute for Regenerative Medicine Collaborative Research Grants

The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) – California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) Collaborative Research Grants scheme has been established to support Australian-based components of collaborative research grants. An NHMRC research grant of up to 3 years duration will be offered to support project work to be conducted by Partner Investigators located in Australia.

Apply for funding under this program

In 2013 NHMRC will support Australian-based components of collaborative research grants as part of RFA 13-05: CIRM Tools and Technologies III Awards

This RFA intends to support the creation, design and testing of broadly applicable novel tools and technologies and the optimization, improvement, standardization or scale-up of existing tools or technologies for addressing translational bottlenecks to stem cell therapies.  Such approaches could include, but are not limited to tissue engineering technologies to enhance cell delivery, survival and integration, the development of biomarkers and assays for stem cell biodistribution, pharmacodynamics and immunological monitoring and stem cell process development advances.

Please note that carriage of administration and assessment responsibilities are with CIRM.

Applicants seeking to apply for support from this scheme should visit the CIRM website for details on how to apply for the appropriate Request for Applications.

Australian-based Partner Investigators (API) on applications  favorably peer reviewed by CIRM will be invited to apply to NHMRC for support for the Australian-based components of the research. APIs will be required to submit an application to NHMRC online via the Research Grants Management System (RGMS). The API must be Chief Investigator A on the application submitted to NHMRC under this scheme.
