“This RFA solicits applications for integrated programs of collaborative and cross-disciplinary research among multiple investigators and will focus on critical research areas that will contribute meaningfully to advancing knowledge of the causes, prevention, and/or treatment of cancer. CPRIT encourages applicants who seek to develop or apply state-of-the-art technologies, tools, and/or resources for cancer research, including those with projects having potential commercialization opportunities.”

  • Applicants may propose collaborative programs that are modest in size or those that are larger and more complex.
