Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities (CRCHD) and the Division of Cancer Biology (DCB), at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), invite grant applications from investigators interested in conducting basic research studies into the causes and mechanisms of cancer health disparities. These awards will support pilot and feasibility studies, development and testing of new methodologies, secondary data analyses, and innovative mechanistic studies that investigate biological/genetic bases of cancer health disparities. This FOA is also designed to aid and facilitate the growth of a nationwide cohort of scientists with a high level of basic research expertise in cancer health disparities research and to provide resources for those investigators that may need additional support on their path to successfully compete for R01/R01* funding in basic research in understanding cancer health disparities.

This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PAR-09-161, which encourages applications under the Cooperative Agreement (U01) mechanism. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds. Budgets of up $275,000/two years (not to exceed to $200,000/year) direct costs are allowed. The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity may not exceed two years. Direct costs are limited to $275,000 over an R21 two-year period, with no more than $200,000 in direct costs allowed in any single year.

Eligible institutions and organizations include: public or state controlled institutions of higher education; private institutions of higher education; Hispanic-serving institutions; Historically Black Colleges and …
