Stem Cell Science
In 2011, the Australian Research Council (ARC) will fund a new collaborative research initiative to support stem cell science through the ARC’s Special Research Initiatives (SRI) scheme. The Australian Government has committed funding of up to $21 million for a period of up to seven years.
The Special Research Initiative in Stem Cell Science will fund one or more proposals to deliver a program of activities supporting stem cell research. The successful proposal(s) will be funded on the basis of the excellence of the researchers and the proposed research program, including demonstrated opportunities for collaboration and the potential to produce significant research outcomes for the benefit for the Australian community.
The Initiative will conduct highly innovative and collaborative research which is internationally competitive, facilitate public understanding and build Australia’s human capacity in stem cell science.
