SRI Call for Applications

Application Process

There will be two types of applications depending on the specific initiative:

  • Request for Proposals (RFPs) are similar to CBCRP's core, investigator-initiated program applications, responding to the particular initiative topic;
  • Request for Qualifications (RFQs) include specific research questions and plan, requesting the qualifications of applicants to conduct the study.

Application instructions and materials will be available through the proposalCentral website, (filter for "California Breast Cancer Research Program"). Applications for those initiatives must be submitted through proposalCentral, and prospective PIs as well as institution officials (i.e., signing officials and fiscal contacts) must be registered in that system.

Future Research Opportunities

In 2014, a new round of intermittent SRI Calls for Applications will begin under the new California Breast Cancer Prevention Initiatives (CBCPI). The first opportunities will pursue successes and intriguing funding topics arising from the previous strategies and new research on address disparities and the environment. These will be followed by new efforts to research interventions for primary prevention at individual and population levels. SRI funding will continue at least through 2015.

Announcements of CBCPI Calls for Applications will be made through the CBCRP e-newsletter, posted on our website and sent to everyone on our CBCRP mailing list.
