Accelerator Grants

Grants of up to $500,000 (GST exclusive) per annum are being made available for two to three years duration (a maximum of $1.6M over the next 3 years) to support specific projects and/or infrastructure for research into Pancreatic Cancer.

The objective of the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation Accelerator Grants is to:

Innovation Grants

Four seed funding grants of $100,000 each (GST exclusive) for one year are being made available to support innovative Pancreatic Cancer projects with a desire to increase interest and investment in Pancreatic Cancer research.

  • Encourage and retain talented skilled individuals in the field of Pancreatic Cancer.
