DoD CDMRP grants

Need assistance with DoD CDMRP proposals?

The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) aims to fill research gaps by funding high impact, high risk and high gain projects that other agencies may not venture to fund. While individual programs are unique in their focus, all of the programs managed by the CDMRP share the common goal of advancing paradigm shifting research, solutions that will lead to cures or improvements in patient care, or breakthrough technologies and resources for clinical benefit. 

When applying for a CDMRP grant, follow the funding opportunity announcement’s guidelines in combination with the General Application Instructions (GAI) guide for that research program. General formatting guidelines are highlighted in the checklists provided in each of the program folders linked below as well as Appendix 4 of any of GAI PDFs.

Access the Review and submit the proposal page for guidance on submission of the proposal, and contact your grants administrator if you have questions (e.g., what documents transfer from SPS versus what is uploaded into grants.duke). 

Note: the preproposal stage is submitted through eBRAP (CDMRP’s system), while the full proposal is submitted through grants.duke
