Funding Opportunities

DoD Prostate Cancer Research Program announces funding opportunities 

The FY19 Defense Appropriation provides $100 million to the Department of Defense Prostate Cancer Research Program to support innovative, high-impact prostate cancer research.

The PCRP is providing the information in this pre-announcement to allow investigators time to plan and develop applications. FY19 PCRP Program Announcements and General Application Instructions for the following award mechanisms are anticipated to be posted on the website in April 2019.

Pre-application and application deadlines will be available when the Program Announcements are released. This pre-announcement should not be construed as an obligation by the government.

The mission of the PCRP is to fund research that will lead to the elimination of death from prostate cancer and enhance the well-being of service members, veterans, and all the men and their families who are experiencing the impact of the disease.

Applications submitted to the FY19 PCRP must address one or more of the program’s Overarching Challenges:

Improve the quality of life for survivors of prostate cancer.

Develop treatments that improve outcomes for men with lethal prostate cancer.

Reduce lethal prostate cancer in African Americans, veterans, and other high-risk populations.

Define the biology of lethal prostate cancer to reduce death.
