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.

The Cardiovascular Collaborative Grants are now open.

Cardiovascular Elite Grants

Elite Postdoctoral Researcher Grants and Research Leader Grants encourage highly talented cardiovascular researchers to move to NSW from interstate or overseas.

Nominations for Elite Grants are made by medical research institutes and universities. Individual researchers are unable to nominate themselves.

A recent opportunity to submit nominations has now closed. Applications are under review with an announcement expected later this year.

Opportunities to attract world-leading researchers to relocate from  overseas do not always align with NSW Health’s calls for nominations. Confidential inquiries about potential nominees are welcome at any time. Please email in the first instance.
