Welcome to NCARD
The National Centre for Asbestos Related Diseases (NCARD) is a research centre funded by the federal government as part of the Government's Strengthening Cancer Care package with measures aimed at prevention, treatment and support for cancer patients and their families.
Through the NHMRC, over $6 million was allocated through a competitive grants process to 11 groups of investigators from a range of institutions including the University of Western Australia, Peter Mac Centre in Victoria, James Cook University in Queensland, and The Prince Charles Hospital in Queensland.
The NCARD investigators are part of a consortium supported by a centre which facilitates the collaboration amongst the researchers and collaborators. The centre has been additionally funded by the NHMRC and The University of Western Australia, through the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR).
