Cardiovascular Research Capacity Program

Supporting high-quality cardiovascular researchers to increase national and international competitiveness of NSW cardiovascular research.

In June 2018, the NSW Government announced a $150 million investment over 10 years into cardiovascular research. NSW’s Cardiovascular Research Capacity Program funds high quality cardiovascular research in NSW in order to drive scientific discoveries, support the development of novel and innovative therapies, and improve health outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease.

New funding rounds for Senior Researchers and Early-Mid Career Researchers are now open. The closing date for both grants is 19 May 2021. The grants aim to:

  • support research excellence among senior and EMC cardiovascular researchers in NSW
  • fund research that improves wellbeing and health outcomes for people with cardiovascular disease
  • embed high-quality, innovative cardiovascular research in the NSW health system
  • encourage collaboration, leadership, and capacity building in the NSW research environment
  • support senior researchers to gain research grants and fellowships from bodies such as the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australian Research Council, and Medical Research Future Fund
  • bridge the gap between research, policy, and practice to increase and document research impact and translation.
