NHMRC Investigator Grants support research across the four pillars of health and medical research: biomedical, clinical, public health and health services, and researchers at all career stages. The scheme aims to allow flexibility for researchers to pursue important new research directions, to form collaborations, and foster innovative and creative research.

Professor Richard Scolyer from the Melanoma Institute Australia has been awarded $3.9M over the next 5 years for his research project “Getting the Diagnosis and Treatment Right for Better Patient Outcomes”.

Dr Anna Singleton from the School of Health Sciences at the University of Sydney will receive $0.6M to support her project on “Scalable Survivorship Support after Cancer (CanSupport): Evaluation of a co-designed and automated eHealth intervention to support cancer survivors in primary care”.

On reflecting on what this means for her career in cancer research, Anna says “I’m over the moon! My dream is that all people living with and beyond cancer will have easy access to support for their health and wellness. This grant brings me one step closer by expanding my EMPOWER-SMS digital health support program across Australia”.

Professor Kirsten McCaffery was awarded $2.8M to further her research project on “Transforming health literacy in Australia: a partnership approach” and Professor Jean Yang‘s project on Statistical bioinformatics at single cell resolution” received $2.6M in funding through this grant.

Congratulations! SCP are proud to hear of your success and look forward to hearing about the research outcomes from these funded projects.
