Program Description:   
CPRIT will foster cancer research in Texas by providing financial support for a wide variety of projects relevant to cancer research. This RFA solicits applications for relatively short-term, high-impact/high-risk projects that are especially innovative in nature, exploring new concepts or new avenues of cancer research. CPRIT encourages applications that seek to apply or develop state-of-the-art technologies, tools, and/or resources for cancer research, including those with potential commercialization opportunities. CPRIT expects outcomes of supported activities to directly and indirectly benefit subsequent cancer research efforts, cancer public health policy, or the continuum of cancer care—from prevention to treatment and cure. To fulfill this vision, applications may address any research topic or issue related to cancer biology, causation, prevention, detection or screening, treatment, or cure.
Applicants may request a total of $200,000 for a period of up to 24 months (2 years), inclusive of both direct and indirect costs. Because of the nature of this funding mechanism, renewal applications will not be accepted.
Please see the solicitation for complete information:
