Department of Defense funding for vision research

The Department of Defense's (DOD) Vision Trauma Research Program (VTRP) posted on the Grants.gov Web site its Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Program Announcements for up to $14.5 million in funding through two mechanisms:

The deadline for pre-proposal submissions for both awards is November 25, 2013. Each mechanism specifies the DOD-identified research gaps for which research should be proposed and states that proposals outside the focus areas should not be submitted. Domestic and international researchers can apply for funding.

Details can be found at the Nation Alliance for Eye and Vision Research's Defense Related Vision Research webpage.
