TTRA Information Session – EOI call to establish Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease Research Centres
The TTRA is rolling out a new, integrated research program to improve the prevention, diagnosis, management & treatment of diabetes, cardiovascular disease & their related complications in Australia.

EOIs are now open, to support the establishment of 2 new Research Centres; one each for diabetes & CVD & each to be funded to a max of $10M over 4 years.

The TTRA Research Centres will accelerate therapies towards clinical practice for the prevention, early detection, treatment and management of disease related complications associated with diabetes or CVD, respectively.

The Diabetes Research Centre’s translational R&D & implementation science activities will address the Priority Areas:
•Priority 1: Diabetic kidney disease;
•Priority 2: Peripheral neuropathy & diabetic foot syndrome;
•Priority 3: Short-term complications of hypoglycaemia &/or hyperglycaemic hyperosmolar syndrome (HHS) & ketoacidosis.

The CVD Research Centre’s translational R&D & implementation science activities will address the following Priority Areas:
•Priority 1: Coronary artery disease (incl angina & MACE);
•Priority 2: Cardiomyopathy/heart failure;
•Priority 3: Transient ischaemic attack (TIA/stroke (ischaemic & haemorrhagic).

The Research Centres must also demonstrate how adoption & implementation of their therapies will subsequently deliver health system outcomes, public health policy outcomes, consumer outcomes, commercial outcomes & reduce the burden of disease & health inequalities in AUS. In addition to R&D, each Research Centre must include a training undertaking as part of its activities.

Guidelines & info are on the TTRA page. Submissions close on 16:00 AEDT Monday 15 March 2021.
