Preproposal is required; application submission is by invitation only.

·         Supports research with the potential to have a major impact on the treatment or management of visual injury and/or dysfunction.

·         The proposed intervention to be tested should offer significant potential impact for military Service members, Veterans, and other individuals living with visual dysfunction.

·         Funding from this award mechanism must support a clinical trial that is expected to begin no later than 12 months after the award date and should not be used for preclinical research studies. 

·         Preliminary data supporting the proposed clinical trial are required.

·         Funded studies will be required to file the study in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) clinical trials registry, www.clinicaltrials.gov

  • At the end of the period of performance, this work should show clear progress toward the next stage of implementation (i.e., Phase II clinical trials, U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance for a medical device, etc.).

Technology and Therapeutic Development Award - Pre-application due July 12, Full applications due October 25

 

PIs who are independent investigators at any level are eligible to submit applications.

Preproposal is required; application submission is by invitation only.

 

  • Supports the translation of promising preclinical findings into products for clinical applications, including detection, diagnosis, treatment, or quality of life.  Products in development should be responsive to the healthcare needs of military Service members, Veterans, and other individuals living with visual dysfunction.
  • The product(s) to be developed may be a tangible item such as a pharmacologic agent (drugs or biologics), device, or a knowledge-based product.
  • A “Knowledge Product” is a non-materiel product that addresses an identified need, is based on current evidence and research, aims to transition into medical practice, training, tools, or to support materiel solutions (systems to develop, acquire, provide, and sustain medical solutions and capabilities), and educates or impacts behavior throughout the continuum of care, including primary prevention of negative outcomes.  

·         The Principal Investigator (PI) must provide a transition plan showing how the product will progress to the next level of development after the completion of the VRP award.

·         Proof-of-concept demonstrating the potential utility of the proposed product, or a prototype/preliminary version of the proposed product, should already be established. 

  • Applications must include relevant data that support the rationale for the proposed study.  These data may be unpublished and/or from the published literature.

·         Maximum funding of $2.1M for total costs (direct and indirect costs)

  • Maximum period of performance is 3 years
