Funding Opportunities for Fiscal Year 2013
The Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) Defense Appropriations Act provides $50 million to the Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP). The vision of the PRMRP is to improve the health and well-being of all military service members, veterans, and beneficiaries. The PRMRP challenges the scientific and clinical communities to address one of the FY13 congressionally directed topic areas with original ideas that foster new directions in basic science and translational research; novel product development leading to improved therapeutic or diagnostic tools; or clinical trials that address an immediate clinical need. This program is administered by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).
Congressionally Directed Topic Areas. The FY13 PRMRP will solicit research applications for the following 24 topics areas:
- Chronic Kidney Disease
- Chronic Migraine and Posttraumatic Headaches
- Composite Tissue Transplantation
- DNA Vaccine Technology for Postexposure Prophylaxis
