Overview

GACD: A Life Course Approach to Common NCD Risk Factor Prevention and Reduction (GO5443)

NHMRC invites applications from Australian researchers under the GACD Common Risk Factors Call 2022. This grant opportunity will support implementation research proposals that take a life course approach to reducing the risks for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and/or in disadvantaged populations in high-income countries (HICs).

NHMRC will exclusively fund projects that focus on young people (10-24), which includes adolescents (ages 10-19) and youth (15-24). The research must be conducted in a LMIC and/or with Indigenous populations in an HIC.

For information about the GACD call please refer to: https://gacd.org/funding/current-call-for-applications/common-risk-factors

Applicants must complete and submit a grant application to GACD and NHMRC

TCR: Improving Indigenous maternal and child health in the early years (GO5465)

A Targeted Call for Research (TCR) is a one-time solicitation for grant applications to address a specific health issue. A TCR specifies the scope and objectives of the research to be proposed, application requirements and procedures, and the review criteria to be applied in the evaluation of applications submitted in response to the TCR.

The Targeted Call for Research: Improving Indigenous maternal and child health in the early years 2022 grant opportunity aims to:

  • identify strength-based, action-oriented approaches and interventions that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ concepts of health and wellbeing, cultural practices, and knowledge and learning to ensure that all children have the best start to life
  • develop a program of research that will positively influence public policy and practice in the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in relation to maternal and child health and early childhood development.

The outcomes of the research will improve maternal and child healthcare knowledge, health policies, care models and interventions. The program will also create a sustainable, multidisciplinary network that will extend beyond the conclusion of the funded research. The research will contribute to closing the gap by ensuring children are born healthy and strong and thrive in their early years.

NHMRC-EU Joint Programme - Neurodegenerative Diseases (GO5370)

NHMRC aims to provide assistance to Australian-based researchers who are participating as regular partners in multinational collaborative research projects that have been recommended for funding under the European Union-JPND Call for Proposals: “Understanding the mechanisms of non-pharmacological interventions” in the area of neurodegenerative disease.

JPND aims to tackle the challenge of neurodegenerative diseases and coordinate investment into research to find causes, develop cures, and identify appropriate ways to care for those with neurodegenerative diseases. The focus of this call is on improving the understanding of the mechanisms and biological substrates that underlie non-pharmacological interventions in order to tailor a holistic personalised treatment approach.

To be eligible for funding under this grant opportunity Chief Investigators (CIs) listed as regular partners whose consortia have been invited by JPND to submit a full application may submit an application to NHMRC.

NHMRC will only fund applications with a key focus on one or several of the following neurodegenerative diseases, as identified in the JPND call text:

  • Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
  • Parkinson’s disease and PD-related disorders
  • Prion diseases
  • Motor neuron diseases
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA)
  • Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).

Applying for funding with any other neurodegenerative disease research focus will not be supported by NHMRC for this grant opportunity.
