Cancer Disparities

Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA): National Cancer Institute (NCI) Provocative Question Initiative


The purpose of this new Funding Opportunity Announcement is to support innovative research projects designed to solve specific problems and paradoxes in cancer research. Twenty Provocative Questions (PQs) are meant to challenge researchers to elucidate specific problems in key areas of cancer research that are important but have not received sufficient attention. New for this year, one of the PQs specifically addresses cancer health disparities: (PQC-3) HOW DO VARIATIONS IN TUMOR-ASSOCIATED IMMUNE RESPONSES AMONG PATIENTS FROM DISTINCT WELL-DEFINED POPULATIONS, SUCH AS VARIOUS RACIAL/ETHNIC OR AGE GROUPS, CONTRIBUTE TO DIFFERENCES IN CANCER OUTCOMES? RFA-CA-13-020 (R01)/ RFA-CA-13-021 (R21)

Applications are due January 15, 2014 and June 20, 2014. Letters of intent are due 30 days before the application due dates.
