Breast Cancer Research Program (BCRP

New for FY22! Clinical Research Extension Award

A pre-application is required and must be submitted through the electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP) prior to the pre-application deadline.

All applications must conform to the final Funding Opportunities/Program Announcements and General Application Instructions which can be found on

A listing of all CDMRP and other USAMRDC extramural funding opportunities can be obtained on the website by performing a basic search using Assistance Listing (formerly CFDA) Number 12.420. 

Beginning in January 2023, the Final NIH Policy for Data Management and Sharing (NOT-OD-21-013) will require researchers to include a data management and sharing plan (DMSP) in all funding applications. 

The Chief Research Informatics Officer (CRIO) Council has convened a working group to determine campus needs and response to the new policy. We are creating CU Anschutz-specific data management and sharing plan (DMSP) templates and concierge services to help researchers. More information can be found on the Research Informatics Office website.

Please email with questions or if you would like to join the Working Group and help define campus data management and sharing infrastructure and policies.

Key features of the new policy are:

  • The policy applies to all research, funded in whole or in part by NIH, that results in the generation of scientific data including grants, contracts, and other transactions; it does not apply to research and other activities that do not generate scientific data, including training, infrastructure development, and non-research activities. 
  • The DMSP is two pages and is not a scored component of proposals.
  • Annual Notice of Award is dependent on RPPR reporting and grant budgets may include costs for preserving and sharing data, including personnel and storage costs. These funds must be spent during the funding period.
  • Scientific data should be made accessible as soon as possible, and no later than the time of an associated publication, or the end of performance period, whichever comes first.
  • NIH will provide a template later this fall. A draft DMS Blank Format Page includes the following categories for inclusion:
    • Element 1: Data type (type, amount, which data will be preserved/shared, metadata and documentation)
    • Element 2: Tools, software, and code
    • Element 3: Data standards
    • Element 4: Data Preservation, access, timelines for sharing and preservation, and repository selection
    • Element 5: Factors affecting access, distribution, or reuse of scientific data, controlled access and privacy considerations
    • Element 6: Institutional compliance, monitoring, and roles

Please complete the CTRC User Satisfaction Survey by October 23.

Your responses determine how CTRC resources and budgets are allocated. This includes CTRC nursing, nutrition, lab, cardiovascular imaging, and adult CTRC Scheduler services.

A high response rate is essential to determine how these services might be funded and maintained to provide the necessary capacity to serve your clinical research needs. The data are also used to provide reports to our funding agency, the National Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (NCATS), and our hospital partners.

Please make sure that all study staff on protocols receive the link to complete the survey.

This session will cover an overview of federal funding for small businesses, with a description of the nuances of SBIR/STTR, types of SBIR and STTR grants, and registrations needed. We will also learn from successful SBIR/STTR awardees.

October 26, 4 – 6 pm Zoom registration

Presented by Stephanie Fertig, HHS Small Business Program Lead in SEED (Small business Education and Entrepreneurial Development) at the NIH.

  • The 2023 School of Medicine Translational Research Scholars Program (TRSP) will provide awards of $75K annually for up to four years.
  • The goal of this program is to facilitate successful early career faculty in pursuing new lines of exploration and to elevate and expand the scope of their translational research.  Scholars are expected to commit 75% of their effort to scholarly activities.
  • Applicants must have a primary appointment in a Department with the SOM, and must be working at CU Anschutz/UCH, Rocky Mountain VAMC, Denver Health, or National Jewish Health.
  • Applicants must be within the first four years of their Assistant Professor appointment at the time of application (years at the Instructor level do not count against this limitation), and must hold an MD, DO, PhD, or DVM-equivalent degree.
Please see the RFA for full details and application process. Letters of Intent are due November 1, 2022. 
For more information, contact Jennifer Kemp, PhD
