The Fiscal Year 2002 (FY02) Defense Appropriations Act provides $5 million to the Department of Defense for "Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Research." Therefore, the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) is establishing the Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia Research Program (CMLRP). The overall goal of the CMLRP is to fund targeted research areas of scientifically meritorious research in accordance with the directives received from Congress.

Release of the FY02 CMLRP Program Announcement (PA) is anticipated for May 2002, with receipt of proposals due in September 2002.

Detailed descriptions of targeted research areas, award mechanisms, evaluation criteria, and submission requirements will be available when the FY02 CMLRP PA is released.
