The Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 Defense Appropriations Act provides $17 million to the Department of Defense Neurofibromatosis Research Program (NFRP) to support innovative research directed toward decreasing the impact of neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) and NF2. This program has been administered since FY96 by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).
The FY01 NFRP Program Announcement is anticipated to be released later in March 2001, with receipt of proposals in July 2001. The NFRP will continue to offer the following mechanisms:
- New Investigator Awards
- Idea Awards
- Investigator-Initiated Research Awards
- Clinical Trial Awards

Detailed descriptions of each of these mechanisms, evaluation criteria, and submission requirements can be found in the FY01 NFRP Program Announcement. This document can be downloaded from the CDMRP website (http://cdmrp.army.mil) upon its release.
