Event details

Date 17.07.2024
Category Call for proposal

Through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP), the Department of Defense is announcing the 2024 Lupus Research Program (LRP). Several award programs are available:

  • The Idea Development Award is intended to support innovative ideas and high impact approaches based on scientifically sound evidence to move toward the BMFRP’s vision of understanding and curing BMF diseases. This award mechanism is designed to support new ideas. Proposed research studies should have a high probability of revealing new avenues of investigation. The research project should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale and a well-developed and articulated research approach.
All applications must specifically address at least one of the Focus Areas listed in this document.
  • The Investigator-Initiated Research Award’s objective is to fund research in the areas of congenital or acquired BMF. Studies focused on BMF syndromes and their progression to other malignancies, such as leukemia, are acceptable. However, research primarily focused on myeloproliferative neoplasms, leukemia, or other malignancies will not be considered. Stem cell biology studies and translational projects, including bone marrow transplantation studies and cellular therapies, should be clearly related to BMF diseases
All applications must specifically address at least one of the Focus Areas listed in this document.

  • Idea Development Award: $530,000
  • Investigator-Initiated Research Award: $675,000 - 850,000

  • Idea Development Award: 3 years
  • Investigator-Initiated Research Award: 2-3 years
