icare’s dust diseases care grant programs - Call for applications
icare’s dust diseases care grant programs is open to all research proposals focussed on ways to increase awareness or reduce the incidence and the negative health and wellbeing impact of dust related occupational diseases.
We invite applications to our 2019 Grant Programs for:
Discovery Grants: available to those undertaking basic and translational research, exploratory, novel and high risk, high reward studies.
Translational Research Grants: available to facilitate the rapid transformation of research discoveries into clinical trials.
Focus Grants: available for projects focussed on occupational exposure to silica. Focus grant applications should be aligned to one of the three problem statements:
how can we create greater awareness about the dangers of working with silica containing materials;
how can we reduce the incidence of silica related occupational diseases; and
how can we best support workers who are diagnosed with a sillica related disease?
