Funding or Award Criteria

CPRIT will foster cancer research in Texas by providing financial support for a wide variety of projects relevant to cancer research. This RFA solicits applications for relatively short-term high-impact/high-risk projects that are innovative, developmental, or exploratory in nature targeting new avenues of cancer research. CPRIT encourages applications that seek to apply or develop state-of-the-art technologies, tools, and/or resources for cancer research, including those with potential commercialization opportunities. CPRIT expects outcomes of supported activities to directly and indirectly benefit subsequent cancer research efforts, cancer public health policy, or the continuum of cancer care – from prevention to treatment and cure. To fulfill this vision, applications may address any research topic or issue related to cancer biology, causation, prevention, detection or screening, treatment, or cure.

Applicants may request up to $200,000 over 24 months, inclusive of both direct and indirect costs.

The complete solicitation can be found online for review.
