FY 18 Topic areas:
To be considered for funding, applications for the FY18 PRCRP Impact Award must address at least one of the FY18 PRCRP Topic Areas as directed by Congress. Research applications in the areas of breast, prostate, lung (excluding mesothelioma), kidney, or ovarian cancer will not be accepted. The FY18 PRCRP Topic Areas are listed below:

*Immunotherapy: As derived from the National Cancer Institute Dictionary of Cancer terms (https://www.cancer.gov/publications/ dictionaries/cancer-terms?cdrid=45729). Immunotherapy is a biological therapy that uses substances to stimulate or suppress the immune system to help the body fight cancer.
**The definition of adolescents and young adults is derived from the National Cancer Institute (https://www.cancer.gov/types/aya). Research should be targeted toward children (ages 0-14 years), adolescents (ages 15-24 years), and/or young adults (ages 25-39 years).

DoD Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Research Program
Investigator-Initiated Focused Research Award 

Amount of funding: Maximum of $600,000 direct costs plus indirects over 3 years
Amount of funding-with Optional Interdisciplinary Collaborator*: Maximum of $750,000 direct costs plus indirects over 3 years
Additional funding for Optional Nested Resident or Medical Student Traineeship:The anticipated direct costs budgeted for the entire period of performance to specifically support this option will not exceed $30,000 for a Medical Student Trainee or $50,000 for a Resident Trainee plus indirect costs in accordance with the organization’s negotiated rate.
Purpose: supports translational research that will accelerate the movement of promising ideas in Duchenne research into clinical applications. Translational research may be defined as an integration of basic science and clinical observations with the specific goal of developing new therapies. However, Principal Investigators (PIs) should not view translational research as a one-way continuum from bench to bedside. The research plan should involve a reciprocal flow of ideas and information between basic and clinical science.
*Optional Interdisciplinary Collaborator (OIC): The FY18 DMDRP strongly encourages interdisciplinary collaborations between diverse groups of academic scientists, clinicians, industry scientists, the military Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and other Federal Government agencies
Optional Nested Resident or Medical Student Traineeship: The intent of the Optional Nested Resident or Medical Student Traineeship is to provide mentored research opportunities in Duchenne.
