This is to provide an update on the status of the release of the FY18 Department of Defense (DoD) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) funding opportunities and program pre-announcements.  You can subscribe to be alerted on the release of specific CDMRP funding opportunities by selecting your area of interest at https://ebrap.org/eBRAP/programSubscription/Subscribe.htm.

As of today, the only FY18 extramural opportunities available are the Breast Cancer Research Program (BCRP), which is currently accepting applications for six award mechanisms throughout May 2018.
