Essentially, the goal of the program is to substantially enhance quality of life by decreasing the impact of cancer on military service members, their families, and the American public.

The guidelines of the program requires the applicants to focus their studies on blood cancers, colorectal cancers, genetic cancer research, kidney cancer, melanoma and other skin cancers, listeria vaccine for cancer, mesothelioma, pancreatic cancer, and pediatric brain tumors.
