MRFF Investigator Grants

The ICTC Grant Opportunity will provide support for Australian research teams to conduct clinical trial research in collaboration with international counterparts. Applications to this grant opportunity must propose a single clinical trial that will achieve the following outcomes:

  • promote Australian involvement in international collaborative investigator-initiated clinical trials research through the establishment and co‑ordination of clinical trial site/s in Australia; and

  • provide high-quality evidence of the effectiveness of novel health treatments, drugs or devices in ‘usual care’ settings, which will support a decision on whether to deliver the intervention in an Australian setting.
