Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program (OCRP)
Translatonal Team Science Award

Amount of funding: up to a maximum of $1,000,000 direct costs (plus indirects) for up to 4 years
Purpose: supports hypothesis-driven translational studies. These studies should be associated with a clinical trial and/or existing annotated biorepositories.

Research projects funded by the TTSA should address critical knowledge gaps in clinical outcomes, validate key research results, expand upon potentially game-changing results, or investigate novel clinical findings.
New for FY18: the TTSA strongly encourages studies investigating:
• Patient-reported outcomes, survivorship, and/or quality of life
• The relationship between prevention and longitudinal cancer risk outcomes
• Risk stratification for primary and metastatic diseases
Military relevance: applications must also address at least one of the above Military Relevance Focus Areas (see the guidelines)
Investigators are strongly encouraged to collaborate, integrate, and/or align their research projects with Department of Defense (DoD) and/or Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) research laboratories and programs.
