The Medical Research Future Fund - Emerging Priorities and Consumer Driven Research (EPCDR) Initiative aims to enable or support:
- high quality biomedical, clinical, health services and/or population health research that improves patient care
- translation of new discoveries into clinical practice
- new diagnoses, treatments and cures to those suffering from rare and debilitating conditions
- joint collaboration of consumers and researchers in undertaking research in emerging priority areas, and
- many Australians with debilitating conditions.
The objectives of the 2019 Ovarian Cancer Research Grant Opportunity are to:
- facilitate innovative, high quality research that will lead to:
- improved diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer
- research that will address the gaps in research, leading to a better understanding of the causes and underlying factors that contribute to the development and progression of ovarian cancer
- facilitate consumer involvement in the design and evaluation of the research project (including participation in the conduct of the research)
- provide high-quality evidence for new health treatments and/or drugs (where appropriate)
- enable rapid translation of consumer-relevant research into clinical practice, health policy, and/or health advice that will lead to positive impacts for consumers
- encourage the development of multi-disciplinary research teams that deliver measureable outcomes that are a priority for consumers
- encourage collaboration between research teams, policy makers, healthcare funders and the health delivery sector (e.g. education, community, industry and/or healthcare).
