Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs -- Traumatic Brain Injury and Psychological Health Research Program -- Translational Research Award

Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

The FY22 TBIPHRP TRA is intended to support translational research that will accelerate the movement of promising ideas in psychological health conditions and/or TBI research into clinical applications, including healthcare products, technologies, and/or clinical practice guidelines.

Applicants should not view translational research as a one-way continuum from bench to bedside. The research plan is encouraged to involve a reciprocal flow of ideas and information between basic and clinical science. As such, applications must include preliminary and/or published data to support the proposed research project.

Applications to the FY22 TBIPHRP TRA may include preclinical and/or clinical research involving human subjects and human anatomical substances. The FY22 TBIPHRP TRA may also support ancillary studies that are associated with an ongoing or completed clinical trial and projects that optimize the design of future clinical trials.

Deadlines:

• Required Pre-Application Deadline: Aug. 24, 2022
• Application Submission Deadline: Sep. 14, 2022
