Promoting participation of early-mid career researchers in high quality research projects across the spectrum.

The NSW Health Statewide Biobank has the capacity to support large-scale population studies.

Early-Mid Career Grant Program Round 5: Microbiomics

Round 5 of the Early-Mid Career Researcher Grants is now open.

NSW Health invites eligible individuals to apply for this grant round which is focused on microbiomics. This priority research area builds on NSW leadership in genomics and proteomics and the grants will support the development of a pipeline of researchers ready to excel in the rapidly expanding field of microbiomics.

Funding will support Early-Mid Career researchers to undertake innovative research in microbiomics. Eligible areas of research include basic, clinical, computational and/or bioinformatics research in host-microbe interactions and their contribution to risk, prevention or treatment of disease in humans.

Only research projects that have potential to improve wellbeing and health outcomes for patients will be considered eligible.

The Early-Mid Career Grant Program aims to:

  • fund research excellence among Early-Mid Career researchers in NSW
  • fund research that improves wellbeing and health outcomes for patients
  • embed high-quality, innovative research in the NSW health system
  • encourage collaboration, leadership and capacity building in the NSW research environment
  • support Early-Mid Career researchers to gain research grants and fellowships from bodies such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Australian Research Council (ARC) and Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF)
  • bridge the gap between research, policy and practice to increase and document research impact and translation.

Applications for this grant round close on 12pm (AEDT) 15 February 2023.
