FY19 PRCRP Topic areas (types of cancer):

To be considered for funding, applications must address at least one of the following FY19 PRCRP Topic Areas. Research applications in the areas of breast, prostate, lung (excluding mesothelioma), kidney, melanoma or ovarian cancer will not be accepted (because there are or will be separate programs).  

Bladder cancer Colorectal cancer Lymphoma Pediatric brain tumors
Blood cancers Immunotherapy** Mesothelioma Rare Cancers***
Brain Cancer Listeria-based regimens for cancer Neuroblastoma Stomach cancer
Cancer in children, adolescents, and young adults* Liver cancer Pancreatic 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).

**Immunotherapy: As derived from the National Cancer Institute Dictionary of Cancer terms. Immunotherapy is a biological therapy that uses substances to stimulate or suppress the immune system to help the body fight cancer.

***Rare cancer is defined by the NCI as a cancer that occurs in fewer than 15 out of 100,000 people each year (https://www.cancer.gov/publications/dictionaries/cancer-terms/def/791790).
 
New for FY19: Studies involving melanoma (including rare subtypes of melanoma) should apply to the new FY19 Melanoma Research Program (TBA). Studies involving other skin cancers will be accepted by the PRCRP under an appropriate FY19 PRCRP Topic Areas (i.e., immunotherapy) 


Military Health Focus Areas
It is central to the vision and mission of the PRCRP that applications address how the proposed research is related to military health, mission readiness, and cancer health needs of both deployed and non-deployed personnel, their dependents, Veterans, and other military beneficiaries (i.e. family members of retirees). The FY19 PRCRP requires all applications to respond to at least one of the Military Health Focus Areas listed below:
