Peter T. Rowley Breast Cancer Scientific Research Projects

Due date: December 6, 2018 by 4:00PM Eastern

The Health Research Science Board (HRSB) wishes to stimulate and support research related to breast cancer biology, causation, prevention, detection or screening, treatment (including treatment of its effects), survivorship or cure. Any investigative approach appropriate to the application topic may be pursued, including, but not limited to, basic, translational, clinical, demographic, mapping, epidemiological, environmental, behavioral or psychosocial research.  The number of awards will be contingent upon the quality of the applications received as well as the size and scope of the proposed projects. Approximately $2.16 million is available to support approximately five to seven awards from this Request for Applications (RFA). The funding is for a period of up to two years. The annual direct costs for a single award are capped at $150,000 per year. Additionally, funds will be available to support Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs up to 20 percent of modified total direct costs. Based on its assessment that the field is ready to pursue additional investigations, the HRSB may determine that additional funds should be made available under this RFA to support additional awards.
