Department of Defense (DOD) Breast Cancer Research Program Concept Award: The overall goal of the FY05 BCRP is to promote research focused on eradicating breast cancer. Therefore, the BCRP challenges the scientific community to design innovative research that will foster new directions for, address neglected issues in, and bring new investigators to the field of breast cancer research. The BCRP focuses its funding on innovative projects that have the potential to make a significant impact on breast cancer, particularly those involving multidisciplinary and/or multi-institutional collaborations and alliances. Underinvestigated avenues of research and novel applications of existing technologies are strongly encouraged. The BCRP encourages risk-taking research; however, all projects must demonstrate solid scientific judgment and rationale. The BCRP's objective within this context is to fund a balanced portfolio of scientifically meritorious research related to all aspects of breast cancer. Proposals are sought across all areas of laboratory, clinical, behavioral, and epidemiologic research, including all disciplines within the basic, clinical, psychosocial, behavioral, sociocultural, and environmental sciences, nursing, occupational health, alternative therapies, public health and policy, ethics, and economics. Proposals that address the needs of minority, low-income, rural, and other underrepresented and/or medically underserved populations are strongly encouraged. The intent of the Concept Award is to fund the exploration of an initial concept or theory that could give rise to a testable hypothesis. Presentation of preliminary data is not consistent with the intent of this award mechanism. These awards provide investigators with the opportunity to pursue serendipitous observations. Proposals must describe how the new concept or theory will enhance existing knowledge of breast cancer or create an entirely new avenue for investigation. Research completed through a Concept Award may provide sufficient preliminary data to enable the investigator to prepare a proposal for future research. The nature of the BCRP does not allow for renewal or supplementation of grants. Approximately $15M is available to fund about 120 FY05 Concept Awards, depending on the quality and number of proposals received. Funding for Concept Awards can be requested for a maximum of $75,000 for direct costs over a 1-year performance period, plus indirect costs as appropriate. These funds can cover salary, expenses including research supplies, and travel to scientific/technical meetings. Estimated timelines for the FY05 BCRP Concept Award proposals are as follows: Full Proposal Submission Deadline: February 7, 2006 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Electronic submission is required. Proposals will be accepted only as PDF files submitted through the CDMRP eReceipt system. The CDMRP uses a two tier review process for proposals: scientific peer review, followed by programmatic review. Details of both tiers of review can be found I the Full Text of the Program Announcement. Applicants should submit questions as early as possible. Every effort will be made to answer questions within 5 working days.
