Fund­ing boost for di­a­betes re­search

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - PENINSULA SNAPSHOT -

DI­A­BETES Re­search WA is call­ing on lo­cal re­searchers fo­cused on tack­ling all forms of di­a­betes to sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion for fund­ing for 2017.

Cel­e­brat­ing its 40th an­niver­sary, it has an­nounced it has boosted its two an­nual grants to $80,000 each.

One grant will sup­port a WA-based ba­sic or fun­da­men­tal re­search project and the other will be awarded to a WAbased clin­i­cal or trans­la­tional re­search project.

Projects that did not re­ceive fund­ing in previous rounds and in­clude as­so­ci­a­tion or col­lab­o­ra­tion with an in­sti­tu­tion, or have co-fund­ing from other sources, will be con­sid­ered favourably.

Re­search projects should be com­pleted by June 20, 2018. Ap­pli­ca­tions close July 30. De­tails at www.di­a­betes re­searchwa.com.au.
