FY15 Peer Reviewed Cancer Idea Award with Special Focus

The Idea Award with Special Focus supports innovative, untested, high-risk/potentially high-reward concepts, theories, paradigms, and/or methods in cancer research that are relevant to active duty Service members, their families, and other military beneficiaries. The “Special Focus” of this award mechanism is on the cancers associated with exposures, conditions, or circumstances that are unique to the military, or disproportionately represented in a military beneficiary population. The advancement of knowledge in cancer research, patient care, and/or treatment options in the military health system is critical to active duty Service members, their families, other military beneficiaries, and the American public. Military relevance should be articulated with respect to the overall military health system and the mission of the DHP and the FY15 PRCRP.
