$5 Million Increase for Kidney Cancer Research

With the passage of the 2018 Omnibus spending bill (H.R. 1625 Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018) by both chambers of Congress and signed into law by the President this past Friday, March 23rd, the KCRP (Kidney Cancer Research Program http://cdmrp.army.mil/kcrp/) pursuant to the CDMRP (http://cdmrp.army.mil/) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program will receive a $5 million dollar increase in available research funds starting immediately. Because we are 6 months into the current fiscal year ('FY18), this funding will be made available for grant awards in the next round of the funding application process. Please stay tuned for additional updates on the FY18 application process.
