- Solicits applications from institutions to establish a Texas CONNECT for Cancer Prevention Study of 25,000-30,000 adults in collaboration with the NCI CONNECT Study. This prospective study will address priorities in cancer prevention, early detection, and etiology research, which include emerging exposures, novel biomarkers, genomics; cutting-edge methodology and diverse and special populations. The CONNECT Study has the long-term potential to identify social, environmental, and behavioral, and genetic factors that underlie cancer risk among Texans. Award: Up to $7.5 million over a period of 5 years.
TREC Institutional Postdoctoral Training Award

Award: Total of $850,000 over a period of 3 years.
TREC Major Instrumentation Award
- Solicits applications from TREC-eligible institutions to enhance research capacity by supporting the purchase of major instrumentation for one or more Core Facilities that will support multiple cancer researchers. Award: Total of $1 million over a period of 2 years.
TREC Pilot Study Award
- Provides short-term funding to explore the feasibility of cancer research projects at TREC-eligible institutions that, if successful, would contribute new insights into the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of cancers forming the basis for applications for peer-reviewed funding from CPRIT or other organizations. Award: Total of $200,000 over a period of 2 years.
