Department of Defense Military Burn Research Program
Anticipated Funding Opportunities for Fiscal Year 2017
Due to the current Continuing Resolution, the Fiscal Year 2017 (FY17) Defense Appropriations bill has not been passed. Although funds have not been appropriated for the Department of Defense Military Burn Research Program (MBRP), the MBRP is providing the information in this pre-announcement to allow investigators time to plan and develop ideas for submission to the anticipated FY17 Funding Opportunities.
The FY17 Defense Appropriations Act provides $8 million (M) to the Department of Defense MBRP to support a broad research portfolio in the treatment of burns and the trauma associated with burn injuries sustained during combat or combat-related activities. Applications to the FY17 MBRP are being solicited by the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity. The managing agent for the anticipated Program Announcements/Funding Opportunities is the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).
FY17 MBRP Program Announcements and General Application Instructions for the following award mechanisms are anticipated to be posted on Grants.gov in June 2017. 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, and funding of research projects received in response to these Program Announcements is contingent on the availability of Federal funds appropriated for the MBRP.
To be considered for funding, each application for the FY17 MBRP Clinical Trial Award must address the following Topic Area:
|Award Mechanism||PI Eligibility||Key Mechanism Elements||Funding|
|Clinical Trial Award||
For Research Level 1
For Research Level 2
A pre-application is required and must be submitted through the electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP) at https://eBRAP.org prior to the pre-application deadline. All applications must conform to the final Program Announcements and General Application Instructions that will be available for electronic downloading from the Grants.gov website. The application package containing the required forms for each award mechanism will also be found on Grants.gov. A listing of all CDMRP funding opportunities can be obtained on the Grants.gov website by performing a basic search using CFDA Number 12.420.
Applications must be submitted through the Federal Government’s single-entry portal, Grants.gov. Submission deadlines are not available until the Program Announcements are released. For email notification when Program Announcements are released, subscribe to program-specific news and updates under “Email Subscriptions” on the eBRAP homepage at https://eBRAP.org.
