Collaborative Project Grant

Share this

The NSW CVRN Collaborative Project Grant program was developed to stimulate, fund and support new collaborative research proposals (among NSW CVRN members) relevant to cardiovascular disease, including stroke, diabetes and kidney disease, which will reduce the burden of disease and translate into better health outcomes.

NSW Cardiovascular Research Collaborative Project Grants will not be open for application in 2018.
