DoD Kideny Cancer, Idea Development Award: The FY18 KCRP Idea Development Award is intended to support innovative ideas and high-impact approaches based on scientifically sound evidence to move toward the KCRP vision of eliminating kidney cancer. The research project should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale and a well-developed and articulated research approach relevant to active duty Service members, Veterans, other military beneficiaries, and the American public. Personnel on the proposed team should have a strong background in kidney cancer research. The anticipated direct costs budgeted for the entire period of performance for an FY18 KCRP Idea Development Award will not exceed $400,000. Refer to Section II.D.5, Funding Restrictions, for detailed funding information. This funding opportunity is open to applications that include eligible EIs and ECIs. The FY18 KCRP expects to fund one or more scientifically meritorious applications from applicants including investigators fitting the outlined description of an ECI. ECIs will be assessed using different criteria for personnel during the review process (refer to Section II.E.1.a, Peer Review). The KCRP defines the ECI as being within 10 years of completing a terminal degree (doctorate or any medical degree), excluding time spent in medical residency, or during family medical leave. Time spent as a postdoctoral fellow is not excluded and must be within the 10-year span from the time of terminal degree. Postdoctoral fellows are not eligible for ECI designation. A Career Guide is required, and a Career Development Plan is required to be submitted by ECIs only. The following are significant features of this award mechanism: Research Approach: The scientific rationale and experimental methodology should demonstrate critical understanding and in-depth analysis of kidney cancer. Experimental strategies may be novel or may be based on strong rationale derived from previously published data and/or presented preliminary data. The feasibility of the research design and methods should be well defined, and a clear plan should be articulated as to how the proposed goals of the project can be achieved. Additionally, resources should be identified and availability supported through documentation. Identification of potential problems and pitfalls with alternate approaches should be addressed. A statistical analysis plan for the proposed research should be included, if applicable, as well as a power analysis to support the design and sample size. Preliminary Data: Preliminary data are required, but need not be in kidney cancer. Preliminary data may include unpublished or published results from the laboratory of the Principal Investigator (PI) or collaborators named on the application and/or data from the published literature relevant to kidney cancer. Innovation: Innovative research may introduce a new paradigm, challenge existing paradigms, look at existing problems from new perspectives, or exhibit other creative qualities. This may include high-risk, potentially high-gain, approaches to kidney cancer research, provided that the application demonstrates the potential for significant impact on the field of research, patient care, and/or quality of life. Research that is likely to yield only an incremental advance is not considered innovative. Impact: Proposed research projects should address a central critical issue or question in kidney cancer research or clinical care. High-impact research will, if successful, significantly advance current methods and concepts in at least one of the FY18 KCRP Areas of Emphasis. Personnel: Personnel are considered a crucial element of the FY18 KCRP Idea Development Award. The application should demonstrate the investigators' expertise in kidney cancer through the PI's background, the research team, or through collaboration. Collaborations should be documented. The proposed research must be relevant to active duty Service members, Veterans, military beneficiaries, and/or the American public.
