Department of Defense Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program (PRCRP): Translational Team Science Award 2017

The Translational Team Science Award (TTSA) supports hypothesis-driven translational studies associated with an ongoing or completed clinical trial that could lead to a next-phase clinical trial or future clinical application. By leveraging information from ongoing or completed clinical trials, research projects funded by the TTSA should address critical knowledge gaps in outcomes, validate key research and expand upon potential transformative results, or investigate novel findings.

Proposals must address one of the following priorities:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Immunotherapy

  • Listeria vaccine for cancer
  • Liver cancer
