Program Description

The intent of the PRMRP Discovery Award is to support innovative, untested, high-risk/ potentially high-reward research that will provide new insights, paradigms, technologies, or applications. Studies supported by this award are expected to lay the groundwork for future avenues of scientific investigation. The proposed research project should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on a sound scientific rationale and study design. The proposed research project should be novel and innovative. Innovative research may introduce a new paradigm, challenge existing paradigms, look at existing problems from new perspectives, or exhibit other highly creative qualities. Research that is an incremental advance upon published data is not considered innovative and is not consistent with the intent of this award mechanism. Inclusion of preliminary data is strongly discouraged. The outcome of research supported by this award should be the generation of robust preliminary data that can be used as a foundation for future research projects to understand the mechanisms of initiation or progression and/or improving patient care for a disease or condition. The Discovery Award is not intended to support a logical progression of an already established research project or other types of ongoing work; therefore, inclusion of preliminary data other than serendipitous findings or in small amounts is not consistent with the exploratory nature of this award. The presentation of substantial preliminary data suggests that the proposed research project would be more appropriately submitted to a different award mechanism.
