The CBCRP announces funding opportunities through our Special Research Initiatives (SRI). Investigators will be supported to pursue research strategies that increase knowledge about and create solutions to both the environmental causes of breast cancer and the unequal burden of the disease. The next SRI funding round will consistent of intermittent Calls for Applications beginning in late 2014 under the California Breast Cancer Prevention Initiatives (CBCPI). The first opportunities will pursue topics arising from the previous strategies and new research on address disparities and the environment. These will be followed by new efforts to research interventions for primary prevention at individual and population levels.
