Screening platform and biomarkers for prediction and prevention of diseases of unmet public health need
Deadline: 15 March 2023
Projects funded under this topic should address this challenge by developing an open platform for screening individuals with the aim of identifying people at risk of disease. Applicants should clearly identify a disease(s) of unmet public health need, and specify the initial biomarkers to identify people at risk that will be used within the project (e.g. genetic, metabolic, digital and imaging biomarkers, lifestyle/environmental, family inherited disease, and/or combinations of these) and explain their choices with relevant evidence where possible. By the end of the project, the screening platform should be able to be used for population screening and decision-making including selection of the most appropriate intervention(s) and new technology development.
