Program Description
Applications to the Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program (PRCRP)
are being solicited for the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, Defense Health
Program (DHP), by the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisitions Activity (USAMRAA). The
PRCRP was initiated in 2009 to provide support for cancer research of exceptional scientific
merit not addressed by the breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and ovarian cancer
research programs executed and managed by the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical
Research Programs (CDMRP). Appropriations for the PRCRP from FY09 through FY12 totaled
$59.8 million (M). The FY13 appropriation is $15M.
The goal of the PRCRP is to improve quality of life by decreasing the impact of cancer on
service members, their families, and the American public. As such, the PRCRP will foster the
next generation of cancer researchers by providing new and early career investigators
opportunities to successfully pursue high-impact research for the prevention, detection, and
treatment of cancer.
