People seeding new ideas into trials.
Grant support for up to 4 concepts up to the total value of $150,000
We know that we need a pipeline of new ideas in order to keep trial momentum moving forward. Ideas do not mean much unless we can translate them into trials. The more we can do this then the more opportunities we will have to improve outcomes for our patients.
It can be challenging to obtain the initial funding to move a concept through to being a viable clinical trial. That’s why the ANZUP Below the Belt Research Fund has been established: to move new ideas into the next evolutionary step and to help improve the prospect of full funding support and completion.
