Prostate Cancer Research Program Clinical Consortium Award Funding Opportunity Number: W81XWH-13-PCRP-CCA

• Pre-Application Submission Deadline: 5:00 p.m. Eastern time (ET), September 18, 2013
• Application Submission Deadline: 11:59 p.m. ET, October 9, 2013

The mission of the FY13 PCRP is to find and fund research that will lead to the elimination of death from prostate cancer and enhance the well-being of men experiencing the impact of the disease. Specifically, the PCRP seeks to promote highly innovative, groundbreaking research; high-impact research with near-term clinical relevance; multidisciplinary, synergistic research; translational studies to support the fluid transfer of knowledge between bedside and bench; research on patient survivorship and quality of life; the next generation of prostate cancer investigators through mentored research; and research on disparities in the incidence and mortality of prostate cancer.

Overarching Challenges (revised for FY13)
Consistent with the program’s mission to eliminate death from prostate cancer and enhance the well-being of men experiencing the impact of the disease, including those from disproportionately affected populations, each PCRP funding opportunity either requires or encourages (see Section I.B., Award Information below) applications to address one of the following three PCRP overarching challenges:
• Develop better tools to detect clinically relevant disease in asymptomatic men
• Distinguish aggressive from indolent disease in men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer
• Develop effective treatments and address mechanisms of resistance for men with high-risk or metastatic prostate cancer
