Individual Investigator Research Awards for Cancer in Children and Adolescents - Supports applications for innovative research projects addressing questions that will advance knowledge of the causes, prevention, progression, detection, or treatment of cancer in children and adolescents. Laboratory, clinical, or population-based studies are all acceptable. CPRIT expects the outcome of the research to reduce the incidence, morbidity, or mortality from cancer in children and/or adolescents in the near or long term. Competitive renewal applications accepted.
Award: Up to $300,000 per year in total costs. Applicants that plan on conducting a clinical trial as part of the project may request up to $500,000 in total costs. Exceptions permitted if extremely well justified; maximum duration: 4 years.

Individual Investigator Research Awards for Clinical Translation - Supports applications which propose innovative clinical studies that are hypothesis driven and involve patients enrolled prospectively on a clinical trial or involve analyses of biospecimens from patients enrolled on a completed trial for which the outcomes are known. Areas of interest include clinical studies of new or repurposed drugs, hormonal therapies, immune therapies, surgery, radiation therapy, stem cell transplantation, combinations of interventions, or therapeutic devices.
Award: Up to $400,000 per year in total costs. Maximum duration: 3 years. Applicants that plan on conducting a clinical trial as part of the project may request up to $600,000 in total costs and a maximum duration of 4 years. Exceptions permitted if extremely well justified.

Individual Investigator Research Awards for Computational Systems Biology of Cancer - Supports applications for innovative mathematical and/or computational research projects addressing questions that will advance current knowledge in the (a) mechanisms that tie altered gene expression and downstream molecular mechanisms to functional cancer phenotypes and/or (b) mechanisms that tie tumor morphology to functional cancer phenotypes, and/or (c) mechanisms that tie treatment sequence and combination to evolving functional cancer phenotypes (that emerge as a result of treatment selection). Broadly speaking, functional cancer phenotypes include migratory, proliferative, metabolic and resistant cancer cell phenotypes.
Partnering of mathematical or computational scientists with cancer biologists or oncologists is highly recommended to form a truly interdisciplinary team that can both develop and validate models leading to a deeper integrated understanding of cancer progression and treatment.
Award: Up to $400,000 per year in total costs. Exceptions permitted if extremely well justified; maximum duration: 3 years.

Individual Investigator Research Awards for Prevention and Early Detection - Supports applications for innovative research projects addressing questions that will advance knowledge of the causes, prevention, early-stage progression, and/or early detection of cancer. Research may be laboratory-, clinical-, or population- based, and may include behavioral/intervention, dissemination or health services/outcomes research to reduce cancer incidence or promote early detection. Competitive renewal applications accepted.
Award: Up to of $300,000 per year in total costs for up to 3 years for laboratory and clinical research; Up to $500,000 per year in total costs for 4 years for population-based research, including implementation research designed to accelerate the adoption and deployment of sustainable, evidence-based cancer prevention and screening interventions at multiple levels and in different clinical and community settings. Exceptions permitted if extremely well justified; maximum duration: 3 years for laboratory and clinical research and 4 years for population-based research.
