The United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC), Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) invites applications for funding for the Fiscal year 2005 Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Research Program (TSCRP) Concept Award. The intent of the Concept Award is to fund the exploration of an initial concept or theory that could give rise to a testable hypothesis. These awards are to encourage the exploration of untested, high-risk questions relevant to tuberous sclerosis complex and are not intended to support the next step in an already established research project. Presentation of preliminary data is not consistent with the intent of this award mechanism. Approximately $0.80 million (M) is available to fund the FY05 TSCRP Concept Awards. Depending on the number and quality of the applications, it is anticipated that eight to ten proposals will be funded. Funding for Concept Awards can be requested for a maximum of $100,000 inclusive of direct and indirect costs for a 1-year performance period. Electronic submission is required. Proposals will be accepted only as PDF files submitted through the CDMRP eReceipt system. No paper copy submissions will be accepted. The CDMRP uses a two-tier review process for proposals: scientific peer review, followed by programmatic review. Details of both tiers of review can be found in the Full Text of Program Announcement.
Estimated timelines for the FY05 Concept Award are as follows: Full Proposal Submission Deadline: February 22, 2005, 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time; Peer Review: April, 2005; Programmatic Review: July, 2005; Award Start Date: Between September, 2005 and January, 2006.
