Supporting research projects

The Collaboration supports translational research projects that focus on the health priorities of Tasmanians and the research priorities of our partners.

Our partners have collectively developed the Collaboration’s Research Priorities Framework. This framework will assist the Collaboration to focus our resources and translation research agenda on the core areas impacting the health of Tasmanians and the Tasmanian Health Care system.

Our research priority focus areas include:
