$130 Million in Funding Opportunities in 2022 from the Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program

CDMRP Cancer Program Update

The Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program (PRCRP) of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) has just announced $130 million in funding opportunities for fiscal year 2022.

Here are the detailed application instructions for the CDMRP awards. Below, we’ve got links for you to download instructions for specific awards.

The CDMRP aim to fund high-risk, high-gain, high-impact projects which other funding agencies may overlook and thus to fill research gaps in critical areas.

What are the Awards?

Each award application must address at least one of the FY22 PRCRP Topic Areas, at least one of the FY22 PRCRP Military Health Focus Areas, and at least one of the FY22 PRCRP Overarching Challenges. Those are listed here.
