The Department of the Army, more commonly referred to as DA, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Defense that is primarily accountable for conducting all the affairs of the department, subject to the authority, direction and control of the Secretary of Defense.
The grants and programs of the DA are all specially designed to contribute to the achievement of its main agency mission which is to "fight and win our Nationâ€™s wars by providing prompt, sustained land dominance across the full range of military operations and spectrum of conflict in support of combatant commanders."
In keeping with this mission, the Department of the Army has established the Peer Reviewed Cancer Career Development Award Program in an attempt to stimulate the next generation of cancer research studies by providing new and early career investigator opportunities that would lead to innovative, cutting-edge research developments for the prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer.
The program was originally established in 2009 to provide support for cancer research of exceptional scientific merit not addressed by the breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and ovarian cancer research programs executed and managed by the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs.
