Grant Description
Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations and research institutions for research projects to advance scientific knowledge about cancer in young people. The purpose of the program is to fill research gaps related to the detection, causes, treatment, prevention, and progression of cancer. Proposals must be related to cancer in children and adolescents.

This Request for Applications (RFA) solicits applications for innovative research projects addressing questions that will advance current knowledge of the causes, prevention, progression, detection, or treatment of cancer in children and adolescents. Applications may address any topic related to these areas as well as projects dealing with the causes or amelioration of late effects of cancer treatment. Laboratory, clinical, or population-based studies are all acceptable. CPRIT expects the outcome of the research to reduce the incidence, morbidity, or mortality from cancer in children and/or adolescents in the near or long term. Applications that seek to apply or develop state-of-the-art approaches, technologies, tools, treatments, and/or resources are encouraged, particularly those with potential for commercialization. Applications that address cancer disparities will be looked on with special favor. Successful applicants should be working in a research environment capable of supporting potentially high-impact studies.

The subject of applications may include, but is not limited to, the following:

Causes of cancer in children and adolescents, including genetic factors or prenatal exposure to environmental agents;

  • Identification of risk factors for cancer development;
  • New methods for diagnosing cancers in children and/or adolescents;
  • Development of new therapies, including targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and new drugs;
  • Identification of patients at risk of developing late effects of cancer treatment;
  • Improvements in quality of life for survivors of childhood and adolescent cancers; and
  • Identification of the determinants for cancer outcomes and mitigation to reduce cancer disparities.

The degree of relevance to reducing the burden of cancer in these populations is a critical criterion for evaluation of projects for funding by CPRIT.

Funds may be used for salary and fringe benefits, research supplies, equipment, subject participation costs, and travel to scientific/technical meetings or collaborating institutions.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
• The applicant must be a Texas-based entity. Any not-for-profit institution or organization that conducts research is eligible to apply for funding under this award mechanism. A public or private company is not eligible for funding under this award mechanism; these entities must use the appropriate award mechanism(s) under CPRIT’s Product Development Research Program.
• The PI must have a doctoral degree, including MD, PhD, DDS, DMD, DrPH, DO, DVM, or equivalent, and be a full-time resident of Texas during the time the research that is the subject of the grant is conducted.
• Collaborating organizations may include public, not-for-profit, and for-profit entities. Such entities may be located outside of the State of Texas, but non-Texas-based organizations are not eligible to receive CPRIT funds.
