Join CPRIT for a webinar for potential applicants navigating the grant opportunities available through CPRIT’s Product Development Research Program.

The webinar will be held on Wednesday, December 19th at 12:00-1:00 pm CT.

Through Product Development Research grants, CPRIT invests in startups and established companies in Texas (and those willing to relocate to Texas) to foster development of novel cancer therapeutics, devices, diagnostics, and tools.

CPRIT released three new requests for applications on December 5, 2018:

  • Texas Company Product Development Research Awards (TXCO)
  • Company Relocation Product Development Research Awards (RELCO)
  • Seed Awards for Product Development Research (SEED)

Applications are due by January 30, 2019. The review timeline, requirements, and application instructions are available in the Funding Opportunities section of CPRIT’s website.

The webinar will include an overview of the TXCO, RELCO and SEED grant applications, including review criteria, the application process, and tips for success.

The webinar will be hosted by Kristen Doyle, CPRIT’s Interim Product Development Officer, and Rosemary French, Senior Program Manager. In addition, David Shoemaker, PhD, CPRIT Product Development Review Council Vice Chair, and Chitra Edwin, PhD, CPRIT Product Development Reviewer, will provide a reviewer’s perspective on the review process and a successful CPRIT grant application.
