Cancer is the leading cause of death from disease among Australian children. In the decade to 2015, nearly 1,000 Australian children under the age of 15 died from cancer.

The funding from the Emerging Priorities and Consumer-Driven Research initiative will support research into:

  • Cancers that occur in children aged 0-14 years.
  • Cancers that occur in adolescents aged 10-19 years.

All MRFF grant opportunities are advertised on GrantConnect.
