The 2019 e-ASIA Joint Research Program (JRP) health call is expected soon for research proposals in the specific fields of infectious diseases, cancer and multidrug resistance.
NHMRC has committed up to $3 million to support the Australian components of projects that address these research topics. To be eligible to apply for NHMRC funding, a research project must consist of Australian researchers partnering with research teams from at least two other e-ASIA participating countries.
A workshop for researchers to promote the development of collaborative research proposals for submission to the e-ASIA JRP health call is scheduled to be held in Singapore in March 2019. Potential applicants may be interested to attend.
