Event details

Date and time 13.09.2019  
Category Call for proposal
Aim: Through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP), the Department of Defense is announcing the Chronic Pain Management Research Program (CPMRP) for 2019. The Investigator Initiated Research Award supports studies that have the potential to make significant advances in research, patient care, and/or quality of life in area of Chronification of Pain. Through understanding the determinates of transition from acute to chronic pain and development of therapies that block the process of chronification, the CPMRP seeks to prevent the manifestation of chronic pain and thus reduce the population requiring pain management interventions. IIRA applications may involve any phase of basic, translational, and clinically oriented research, including studies in animal models, research with human anatomical substances, and research with human subjects. Multidisciplinary collaborations and innovative approaches are encouraged.
To meet the intent of the award mechanism, applications to the FY19 CPMRP Investigator-Initiated Research Award must address research in program’s Focus Area, Chronification of Pain.
