Summary: CPRIT High-Impact/High-Risk (HIHR) Research Awards seek to provide short-term funding to explore the feasibility of high-risk projects that, if successful, would contribute major new insights into the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of cancers. Because HIHR Research Awards are designed to support new ideas, preliminary data are not required. Using this mechanism, CPRIT intends to support innovative, developmental projects that focus on exceptionally promising topics that are not yet sufficiently mature to compete successfully for more conventional funding. The HIHR Research Awards are expected to provide the foundation for individual or multiple investigator awards upon completion. Applicants must explain why more conventional sources of support are not available for the proposed research and how short-term funding will lead to strong applications for additional support.
Applications that might be described as “mini-R01s” will not be competitive. The goal of this award mechanism is to fund uncommonly great ideas that merit the opportunity to acquire preliminary data. There should be reasons for the idea to be plausible, but CPRIT acknowledges that most of the selected projects will ultimately fail to meet their primary goals. The rare proposals that succeed will be of sufficient importance to justify this program. Applications may address any research topic related to cancer biology, causation, prevention, detection, screening, treatment, or survivorship.
