Health Disparity Research Award
Amount of funding: Direct costs budgeted will not exceed $600,000 for New Investigators and $750,000 for Established Investigators.
Purpose: The FY20 PCRP Health Disparity Research Award supports promising research ideas that have high potential to make a significant impact in eliminating disparities in prostate cancer incidence, morbidity, mortality, and survivorship. Applications for this award are encouraged to be relevant to one or more of the FY20 PCRP Health Disparity Research Award Focus Areas and must explicitly state how the proposed research is related to the selected focus area(s). If the proposed project does not address one of the FY20 PCRP Health Disparity Research Award Focus DoD FY20 Prostate Cancer Health Disparity Research Award 5 Areas, the application must provide a description to justify how the project will nevertheless address a critical disparity-related need in the field of prostate cancer research and/or patient care. Applications are encouraged from a spectrum of disciplines, including but not limited to basic science, engineering, bioinformatics, population science, psycho-oncology, translational research, health care services.
