Current Other NCI & NIH InitiativesRSS

This page lists current other NCI and NIH cancer imaging initiatives, including grant mechanisms where industry is encouraged to apply.

For information about the funding process, go to Mechanisms or Guidelines.

The NCI's Division of Extramural Activities provides information about newly approved concepts, which may become RFAs and PAs. Check the Concepts Cleared at the NCI Board of Scientific Advisors Meeting web site for the earliest possible information about future initiatives.

  • Early-Stage Development of Informatics Technology (U01)

    • Release Date: September 20, 2012
    • Application Receipt Date: January 22, 2013, June 18, 2013, November 18, 2013, June 18, 2014, November 18, 2014, June 18, 2015 , by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
    • Expiration Date: June 19, 2015
    • Contacts:

      Jiayin (Jerry) Li, M.D., Ph.D.; Phone: 240-276-6210; Email: jerry.li@nih.gov

      For contact information for specific areas, please consult the FOA for the complete list.

    The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite Cooperative Agreement (U01) applications for the development of enabling informatics technologies to improve the acquisition, management, analysis, and dissemination of data and knowledge in cancer research. As a component of the NCI's Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) Initiative, this FOA focuses on early-stage development from prototyping to hardening and adaptation. The central mission of the ITCR is to promote research-driven informatics technology development. In order to be successful, proposed development plans must have a clear rationale on why the proposed technology is needed and how it will benefit the cancer research community. In addition, mechanisms to solicit feedback from users and collaborators throughout the development process should be included. Applications that focus on data processing and analysis or mathematical/statistical modeling alone without new technology development are not appropriate for this FOA.

    Earliest submission date: December 22, 2012

      For contact information for specific areas, please consult the FOA for the complete list.

    The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite revisions (formerly called "competing revisions") from currently funded NCI U01 cooperative agreement projects for early-stage development of enabling informatics technologies to improve the acquisition, management, analysis, and dissemination of data and knowledge. As a component of the NCI's Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) Initiative, this FOA aims to promote interdisciplinary collaboration in the development of innovative computational methods and informatics approaches that are essential for cancer research on all fronts to accelerate scientific discovery and ultimately translate data into knowledge and clinical practice. Applications that focus on data processing and analysis or mathematical/statistical modeling alone without new technology development are not appropriate for this FOA.
