Vision Research Program (VRP): The Vision Research Program was established in fiscal year 2009 (FY09) to provide support for scientifically meritorious research. Investigators continue to assess new technologies and therapies to address the ocular issues of service members. Current research targets the causes, effects and treatment of eye damage and diseases that, despite their different mechanisms and pathogenesis, all have a common end result: degeneration of the critical components of the eye and impairment or loss of vision. In order to implement therapeutic strategies to prevent or treat visual problems common to combat soldiers, the military wants to develop and validate compounds and strategies. The US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) is soliciting research that targets the various causes, effects and treatment of visual injury resulting from exposures to the elements during combat operations, and damage from explosive devices. The results of this research are intended to be used to ensure and sustain combat readiness. Translational and clinical research efforts are sought to ensure that results of scientific research will be used to directly benefit and preserve the human lives of military and veteran populations.Preliminary research Pre-proposals are required and will provide the basis for invited full proposals. Full proposals will be reviewed by an independent scientific peer review panel and qualified projects will be selected for funding by a programmatic panel.If the research is not relevant to the currently advertised TATRC goals and critical areas identified, the Government reserves the right to administratively withdraw the full proposal. The Government also reserves the right to reassign the full proposal's topic area if submitted under an incorrect topic area.
