DoD Early Investigator Research Award in Prostate Cancer Research

Funding Opportunity Number: HT9425-23-PCRP-EIRA

LOI Deadline: August 3, 2023

Early Investigator Research Awards support prostate cancer-focused research opportunities for individuals in the early stages of their careers under the guidance of one or more designated mentors. This opportunity allows early-career investigators to develop a research project, investigate a problem or question in prostate cancer research, and further their intellectual development as prostate cancer researchers of the future.

The postdoctoral investigator is considered the PI of the application and must exhibit strong potential for and commitment to pursuing a career as an investigator at the forefront of prostate cancer research; however, the PI is not required to have previous prostate cancer research experience. The PI must have 3 years or less of postdoctoral research experience (excluding clinical residency or clinical fellowship training) as of March 31, 2024. The PCRP strongly encourages applications from PIs who demonstrate a commitment to pursuing a career focused on prostate cancer health disparity research.
