CIP Web Site:  http://www.cancer.gov/bip

NIH

  1. NOTICE TO NIH GRANTEES/CONTRACTORS REGARDING LETTERS OR NOTICES FROM THE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION (FDA) (Notice: OD-00-053)
    Many NIH grantees/contractors conduct clinical research that involves a drug, biologic or device for which there is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Investigational New Drug Application (IND) and/or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). When the NIH funds all, or part, of a clinical study that is being conducted under an IND and/or IDE, it is important that the NIH be knowledgeable about any significant communications with the FDA about that study.

  2. ADDENDUM - EXPLORATORY STUDIES IN CANCER DIAGNOSTICS (PA-98-022)
    (NOTICE: CA-00-026)
    This addendum is to inform potential applicants of a change in the level of support permitted under Program Announcement (PA), PA-98-022, EXPLORATORY STUDIES IN CANCER DIAGNOSTICS. The change is as follows: Applicants may request up to $100,000 per year in direct costs, including any consortium costs. All other provisions of PA-98-022 remain unchanged.

  3. ANCILLARY STUDIES TO NIMH MULTI-SITE CLINICAL TRIALS - CHANGE IN RECEIPT DATES (NOT-MH-00-012)
    http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-MH-00-012.html.
  4. NOVEL TECHNOLOGIES FOR NONINVASIVE DETECTION, DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF CANCER (NCI) Broad Agency Announcement No. N01-CO-17014-32 Issue Date: September 15, 2000 Due Date: December 15, 2000
    The Unconventional Innovations Program (UIP) is specifically soliciting projects to develop technology systems or systems components that will enable the sensing of defined signatures of different cancerous and precancerous cell types or their associated micro-environment in the body in a way that is highly sensitive and specific, yet non-intrusive. The highest priority is for systems that can either support or provide a seamless interface between sensing/detection and intervention. Currently funded projects are described at http://otir.nci.nih.gov/tech/uip_awards.html

  5. INTERAGENCY COUNCIL ON BIOMEDICAL IMAGING IN ONCOLOGY
    The second due date for requests is Monday, October 9, 2000.
    The Interagency Council is a newly created multi-agency group designed to serve as a sounding board for investigators and manufacturers attempting to take emerging medical imaging technology to market.

  6. NINDS GRANT SUPPORT MECHANISMS (NOTICE: NS-00-010)
    The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is publishing this notice to notify the research community of the grant support mechanisms for which NINDS will accept "unsolicited" grant applications. Unsolicited applications are those that are not submitted in response to a specific request for application (RFA) or program announcement (PA).

  7. NIH NATIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE AWARDS FOR SENIOR FELLOWS (F33) (PA-00-131)
    The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awards NRSA senior fellowships (F33) to experienced scientists who wish to make major changes in the direction of their research careers or who wish to broaden their scientific background by acquiring new research capabilities. These awards will enable individuals with at least seven years of research experience beyond the doctorate, and who have progressed to the stage of independent investigator, to take time from regular professional responsibilities for the purpose of receiving training to increase their scientific capabilities.
