Wednesday, December 3, 2014 - DoD PRCRP Webinar

When researchers think about federal funding for new programs, they most often think about the NIH and CDC. However, the Department of Defense (DoD), through their Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRPs), offers research funding for many diseases, including gastric cancer.

If you're unsure how this program works, join me for a webinar on Wednesday, Dec. 3, during which Donna Kimbark, PhD, the program manager and technical lead for multiple programs and initiatives within DoD's CDMRPs, will review the types of award mechanisms, congressional directives and the program cycle.

Date:  Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Time:  Noon-1pm ET



  • Donna Kimbark, PhD, the program manager and technical lead for multiple programs and initiatives within DoD's CDMRPs
  • Timothy Wang, MD, AGAF, AGA Institute Vice President
  • Jaffer Ajani, MD, Chair, Debbie's Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer Medical Advisory Board, MD Anderson Cancer Center
