DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE LUNG CANCER RESEARCH PROGRAM FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR FISCAL YEAR 2015

The fiscal year 2015 (FY15) defense appropriations act provides $10.5 million to the Department of Defense (DOD) Lung Cancer Research Program (LCRP) to support innovative, high-impact lung cancer research. This program is administered by the US Army Medical Research and Material Command (USAMRMC) through the Office of Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).

2015 Free to Breathe Research Grant Competition

Free to Breathe has a new funding opportunity solely focused on research to prevent or stop lung cancer metastasis. We seek to support high-impact and innovative lung cancer research within this area of emphasis that will result in clinical translation (e.g. clinical trial) by the end of the 3-year award period. Our ultimate goal is to fund research that will result in treatments for lung cancer patients and increase survival. For 2015, we expect to support up to three $600,000 awards, paid over 3 years.

The objective of this new ALCF funding mechanism is to identify brilliant, young “out of the box” thinkers/researchers who can collaboratively deliver a meaningful and measurable result that helps ALCF move towards our goal of making lung cancer a chronically managed disease by the year 2023. The Young Innovator Team Award will provide up to a total of $500,000 per team, up to three teams, over a duration of 2-3 years, depending on the proposal and final decision by the Scientific Review Committee.
