Research projects aim to improve life for brain cancer survivors
Researchers will study the medical, functional and psychosocial needs of people who have survived brain cancer in a major 3-year research project funded through the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF).
The Australian Government has announced funding for brain cancer projects through the MRFF's Australian Brain Cancer Mission:
- $4.97 million for a team at the University of Sydney to undertake a comprehensive research program for brain cancer rehabilitation, assessment, and intervention
- $1.94 million for a team at the University of New South Wales to help childhood brain cancer survivors improve their confidence to manage their health and to improve their quality of life
A further $3 million grant opportunity will open on 1 July 2020 for research to support new approaches and technologies to improve communications between brain cancer survivors, their families, carers and health care professionals.
See the media release for more details on these projects.
