Patricia S. Brown Breast Cancer Risk Reduction Education Research Projects

Due date: January 3, 2019 by 4:00PM Eastern

The purpose of the Patricia S. Brown Breast Cancer Risk Reduction Education Research Projects Request for Applications (RFA) is to encourage the development and implementation of innovative pilot projects in breast cancer risk reduction education with rigorous evaluation and revision. Successful applications will propose the design of new educational strategies to elicit behavior changes intended to reduce specific risk factors associated with developing breast cancer.  The Health Research Science Board (HRSB) is interested in supporting projects that go beyond replicating or updating existing programs and materials. Further, this support is not intended to fund smaller components of larger research projects. 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 $270,000 is available to support approximately one (1) award from this RFA. The funding is available for a period of up to three years. The annual direct costs for a single award are capped at $75,000 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.
