Funding boost for diabetes research
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.
