February Announcements

Reducing Overscreening for Breast, Cervical, and Colorectal Cancers among Older Adults FOAs (R21 & R01)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to promote research to reduce overscreening of average-risk older adults for breast, cervical, or colorectal cancers.  Overscreening of older adults may be driven by factors at the individual, healthcare team, healthcare system and community organization levels.  Research is needed to understand these drivers and to develop and test interventions to change them. Research supported by this FOA should enhance knowledge and reduce overscreening, thereby improving the health, independence, and quality of life of older adults. FOA Links: PA-17-109 (R21) ,  PA-17-110 (R01)

Feasibility Studies to Build Collaborative Partnerships in Cancer Research (P20)
National Cancer Institute
Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer
Institute (NCI) invites P20 planning grant applications for developing
collaborative partnership between institutions serving underserved
health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPS) and
NCI- designated Cancer Centers (or Cancer Centers with highly integrated
cancer research programs). This FOA is designed to facilitate the
planning and execution of focused collaborations in cancer-related
research, research experience, and research education. A major goal of
the NCI P20 partnership programs is to provide support for investigators
at ISUPS and Cancer Centers to conduct cancer research pilot projects
and cancer research education program. The purpose of the pilot projects
and education program is to allow awardees to obtain preliminary data
that will lead to competitive grant applications for funding by the
NIH/NCI and/or other Federal/Non-Federal agencies.
