Additional Information on Eligibility
Information not provided
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. Thus, data from preliminary studies are discouraged. These awards provide investigators with the opportunity to pursue serendipitous observations; it is anticipated that research completed through a Concept Award may provide sufficient preliminary data to enable the investigator to prepare a hypothesis-based proposal for future research. Proposals must describe how the new concept or theory will enhance existing knowledge of breast cancer. Topics of particular interest to the BCRP include, but are not limited to, systems biology, proteomics, computational biology, nanotechnology, early detection, and primary prevention. Concepts from complementary areas of science such as chemistry, biophysics, mathematics, engineering, etc. are encouraged as are research proposals submitted by consumers. 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. Projects requiring lower levels of funding may also be submitted. These funds can cover salary, expenses including research supplies, and travel to scientific/technical meetings. The amount allotted for travel is $1,800 per year. In addition, funding should be requested for a one-time, three and a half day meeting in 2005 to disseminate the results of DOD-sponsored research. Detailed description of the funding mechanisms, evaluation criteria, and submission requirements can be found in the FY03 BCRP Concept Award Program Announcement located at the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) web site.
