Biobank Interim Support Program 2021

The Future Health Research and Innovation Fund’s Biobank Interim Support Program 2021 provides bridging funding to high-quality WA biobanks to ensure they can transition to a new biobank model, once it is determined. Applicants must meet a criterion of ‘excellence’, which is demonstrated through Total Research Income of at least $1,000,000 over the previous three years (2018-2020). For the purposes of the Biobank Interim Support Program 2021, Total Research Income consists of competitive grant income and a dollar value attributed to PhD students for projects based on or using samples and/or associated data from the biobank.

While this program has now closed to applications, the Biobank Interim Support Program 2021 Guidelines and Conditions and Application Form can be accessed below for reference:
