Grant Description
Grants to USA, Canada, and International investigators, organizations, and government agencies for medical research associated with health in the military. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding, in the form of an assistance agreement, is intended to conduct innovative, non-incremental, high-risk/potentially high-reward research that will provide new insights, paradigms, technologies, or applications that benefit military service members, veterans, and beneficiaries.

Studies supported by this award are expected to lay the groundwork for future avenues of scientific investigation. The proposed research project should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on a sound scientific rationale and study design.

Applications are required to include an explanation of how the proposed project has relevance to military health. Applicants are encouraged to integrate and/or align their research projects with DOD and/or Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) research laboratories and programs. Collaboration with DOD or VA investigators is also encouraged.

All applications for FY23 PRMRP funding must specifically address one of the FY23 PRMRP Topic Areas as directed by the U.S. Congress and have direct relevance to military health. Additionally, the PRMRP implements a portfolio-driven approach by grouping related Topic Areas with Strategic Goals as a framework within which to address critical gaps in major research areas. All applications must address one of the FY23 PRMRP Strategic Goals as it relates to the portfolio-assigned FY23 PRMRP Topic Area.
