The brightest minds. The boldest cancer research.
The Venture Grants research program is pushing the boundaries of cancer research with innovation and imagination.
Breakthroughs in treatment and prevention will take the brightest cancer researchers with courageous ideas who are willing to push the boundaries of conventional thinking. It will take new and creative approaches to new technologies and collaboration to build upon decades of cancer research.
Launched in 2006, previous rounds of Venture Grants have been successful incubators of early research ideas, allowing projects to develop from proof of concept into mature projects eligible for conventional funding.
We are delighted to announce that round four of Venture Grants will launch later this year. By donating to the Venture Grants fund you will support four research teams embark on groundbreaking new cancer research.
“One of the novel and exciting aspects of the Venture Grants program is the way that we work together over the course of the grants and can continue to interact, not only with the panel, but with donors and Cancer Council Victoria as the project progresses. There is this great feeling of everyone working together towards very exciting outcomes for cancer patients.” - Professor Roger Daly, Venture Grants round two researcher
