ACN Grants

While the ACN does not directly administer grant funding, its members report grant income that supports work related to the ACN.  ACN researchers have been very successful at securing grants to support nanomedicine projects - the total value in 2014 was AUD $6.36M, while the value in 2015 is approximately AUD $3.8M.

We would like to congratulate our directors, Justin Gooding and Maria Kavallaris, on their successful ARC Program Grant which will commence in 2016 and provide AUD $7M of funding through 2020.  The projected grant income for 2016 is AUD $4.2M.
