The Department of the Army, through the US Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA), has posted a grant opportunity titled "DoD, Melanoma, Melanoma Academy Scholar Award". This grant is in the category of Science and Technology and other Research and Development. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The total program funding is $2,640,000, and it is expected to award 3 grants. The closing date for applications is August 26, 2024.

The purpose of this grant is to support early-career researchers or physician-scientists in the field of melanoma research. The Principal Investigator (PI), who must be an early-career researcher or physician-scientist within 7 years of obtaining their first faculty-level appointment, will be evaluated based on their accomplishments and proposed research related to the FY24 Melanoma Research Program (MRP) Focus Areas. The PI's organization must demonstrate a commitment to the PI by providing independent laboratory space.

The proposed research should have an impact on melanoma research and/or patient care, and should align with at least one of the FY24 MRP Focus Areas. The grant also requires the PI to develop a Career Development and Sustainment Plan, which includes strategies for collaborations, acquiring necessary skills, competencies, and expertise in the melanoma field. The PI must designate a Career Guide, an experienced melanoma researcher, who will support the Scholar's career development and actively participate in the Melanoma Academy (MA) activities.

Preliminary data are not required for this grant, but any unpublished, preliminary data presented should originate from the PI's laboratory or research team.

For more information and to apply for this grant, interested applicants can contact the CDMRP Help Desk at help@eBRAP.org or call 301-682-5507. The grant opportunity will be archived on September 25, 2024.
