Targeted call for research into dementia in Indigenous Australians



The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) invites applications for its targeted call for research into dementia in Indigenous Australians. This supports culturally appropriate research that specifically addresses dementia in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians and its impact on their families and carers. Research should be translational and focus on one of the following priority themes:

Culturally competent collaborative research teams including at least one investigator with a strong track record of working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australian populations may apply. Other participants may include researchers with expertise in public health and health services. Proposals must include the involvement of indigenous communities in the development, conduct and communication of research. Shared ownership should be demonstrated between Indigenous Australians, their communities, indigenous health service providers, consumers and academic researchers.

A total of AUD 10 million is available to support a small number of collaborative research teams. Funding is for five years over the period from 2018 to 2022.
