Grants to USA, Canada, and International organizations and public entities to improve the healthcare, health, and wellbeing of USA military service members and veterans. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a proposal. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support research projects of clear scientific merit and direct relevance to military health.

The vision of the FY21 PRMRP is to improve the health, care, and well-being of all military Service Members, Veterans, and beneficiaries, and its mission is to encourage, identify, select, and manage medical research projects of clear scientific merit and direct relevance to military health. The PRMRP challenges the scientific and clinical communities to address the FY21 PRMRP Topic Areas with original ideas that foster new directions along the entire spectrum of research and patient care. The program seeks applications in laboratory, clinical, behavioral, epidemiological, and other areas of research to advance knowledge in disease etiology; improve prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for those affected by a relevant disease or condition; and develop and validate clinical practice or public health guidelines. The proposed research must be relevant to active-duty Service Members, Veterans, military beneficiaries, and/or the American public.

All applications for PRMRP funding must specifically address at least one of the Topic Areas as directed by Congress and must be of clear scientific merit and direct relevance to military health. The PRMRP Investigator-Initiated Research Award is intended to support studies that will make an important contribution toward research and/or patient care for a disease or condition related to at least one of the FY21 PRMRP Topic Areas.The FY21 PRMRP Topic Areas are: Arthritis; Burn Pit Exposure; Cardiomyopathy; Congenital Heart Disease; Diabetes;  Dystonia; Eating Disorders; Emerging Viral Diseases; Endometriosis; Epidermolysis Bullosa; Familial Hypercholesterolemia; Fibrous Dysplasia; Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis; Food Allergies; Fragile X; Frontotemporal Degeneration; Hemorrhage Control; Hepatitis B; Hydrocephalus; Hypertension; Inflammatory Bowel Diseases; Malaria; Metals Toxicology; Mitochondrial Disease; Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Myotonic Dystrophy; Non-Opioid Therapy for Pain Management; Nutrition Optimization; Pathogen-Inactivated Blood Products; Peripheral Neuropathy; Plant-Based Vaccines; Platelet-Like Cell Production; Polycystic Kidney Disease; Pressure Ulcers; Pulmonary Fibrosis; Respiratory Health; Rheumatoid Arthritis; Sleep Disorders and Restriction; Suicide Prevention; Sustained Release Drug Delivery; Vascular Malformations; Women’s Heart Disease.

Relevance to Military Health: Relevance to the healthcare needs of military Service Members, Veterans, military beneficiaries, and/or the American public is a key feature of this award. Investigators are encouraged to consider the following characteristics as examples of how a project may demonstrate relevance to military health:

  • Explanation of how the project addresses an aspect of the target disease/condition/technology that has direct relevance or is unique to the health of military Service Members, Veterans, or beneficiaries
  • Explanation of how the project addresses an aspect of the target disease/condition/technology that has relevance or is unique to the military or family readiness of Service Members
  • Description of how the knowledge, information, products, or technologies gained from the proposed research could be implemented in a dual-use capacity to benefit the civilian population and also address a military need
  • Use of military or Veteran populations or datasets, if appropriate to the proposed research

Applicants are encouraged to integrate and/or align their research projects with DOD and/or VA research laboratories and programs. Collaboration with DOD or VA investigators is also encouraged.
