BEAT CANCER PROJECT

In late 2011 Cancer Council SA and SA Health signed an agreement with the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) to manage its investment into cancer research in South Australia.
The Beat Cancer Project (formerly referred to as the SA Cancer Research Collaborative (SACRC)) commenced in the 2011-2012 financial year and all current and future cancer research funding is now managed by SAHMRI, with SAHMRI the point of contact for any queries, current or future.
The Beat Cancer Project is a $30million investment and is a partnership between Cancer Council SA, SA Health (the core Funders), SAHMRI, the Flinders University of South Australia, University of Adelaide and University of South Australia. Over the next five years Cancer Council SA will provide SAHMRI with $2 million per year to fund Cancer Council SA’s future cancer research infrastructure, fellowship and grants program. This significant investment will also be matched by SA Health resulting in a doubling of funds to $20million for cancer research in SA over the next five years. It is intended that with matching funding of $10million with external agencies, the total sum will total at least $30M over 5 years.
This is an exciting endeavour that will provide a smarter and more efficient way of delivering cancer research funds. Overall, the agreement aims to develop a larger pool of funds for cancer research, increase the capacity for researchers to attract more national and international research grants and build a stronger cancer research workforce within South Australia. A key objective is translation of research results to inform complementary research activity, health policy development and practice.
