Seed Funding

This is now the fourth round of seed funding from The Hopkins Centre Translational Research Grants. These seed grants are intended to support the establishment and conduct of
interdisciplinary research that promotes applied research on priority issues and improvements relevant to disability and rehabilitation clinical practice, service delivery and systems. Seed grants provide funding to support interdisciplinary, start-up research; pilot work; translation of research; or the progress and/or upscaling of existing research, with the expectation that interdisciplinary teams will consolidate collaborations that may lead to further research and funding opportunities and/or achieve specific practice or service delivery impacts.

Please review the Guideline and Application Form to check your eligibility and process. Submit your application form to by 5.00pm, 12 October 2018.

Clinical Fellowship

Clinical Fellowships are an integral part of The Hopkins Centre’s approach to embedded models of research that promote continuous, positive relationships and interactions between clinicians, researchers and other key end-users of research. The aim is to develop and maintain a credible exchange of scholarship and knowledge transfer to benefit rehabilitation services and the people who utilise these services. The objectives of Clinical Fellowships are to increase clinician-led research to ensure close links between practice and research, build research capacity and optimise translation opportunities in the area of rehabilitation.

The primary focus of Fellowships is research that improves outcomes for people living with the long-term consequences of acquired brain injury, amputation, persistent pain, and spinal cord injury as well as developmental, age-related and other life-long disabling conditions. It includes people’s networks of support. Applications are open to a range of disciplines including medicine, nursing, allied health and clinicians at any stage of their career. There are two Fellowship opportunities available. Please review the Guideline and EOI form to check your eligibility and process

Submit your EOI for a THC fellowship by November 5th 2018 to The Hopkins Centre at
