Australian Respiratory Council



The ARC is seeking to award research grants of approximately $20,000 per grant in 2020. Grants will be for projects that address basic science, clinical research, and public health in tuberculosis, respiratory diseases due to other infections, or respiratory diseases related to tobacco use. Projects examining community issues or the health of disadvantaged groups that relate to the work that the ARC undertakes within Australia and the Pacific Region are particularly encouraged.

Further information about the project work undertaken by the Australian Respiratory Council can be found on the website:

The ARC Research Support Grants will be allocated for projects that were submitted to the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) under the Ideas Grants Scheme in 2019 that were assessed as fundable by the NHMRC but have missed the cut-off for funding in 2020.

Initial applications close on the 15th November, 2019
