Translation Fellowships - Burden of Disease and Genomics

The Translation Fellowships 2024 – Burden of Disease and Genomics program (the Program) provides three-year fellowship funding and a research allowance to support high-quality early- to mid-career researchers in the areas of Burden of Disease and/or Genomics.

The Program aims to support translation of research findings into improved policy, practice, and knowledge regarding burden of disease and/or genomics, leading to improved health outcomes for Western Australians.

Up to $200,000 per annum for up to three years will be provided to support salary costs and a research project (with at least $50,000 per annum for the research project).

The Program will consider applications concerning any of the top five disease groups contributing to WA’s burden of disease (cancer, mental and substance use disorders, musculoskeletal conditions, cardiovascular diseases and injuries) or in the area of genomics.

To ensure relevance to the WA health system, a translational partner who is a WA provider of related burden of disease and/or genomics services must be involved in scoping and preparing the application and commit to working with the Activity Lead in facilitating the deliverables of the translational research project.

Program Status: Open for Applications
