This page lists past other NCI and NIH cancer imaging initiatives, including grant mechanisms.
Requests for Application (RFA) are usually announced with special application dates; there is no possibility for applying after that date. Program Announcements (PA, PAR) may be open for a set period of time, such as 3 years or less; applications submitted in response to Program Announcements may be due on the standard dates (February 1, June1, and October 1) or may have special dates for receipt of applications. Please pay attention to these dates. Contact a CIP staff member if you have questions.
For this FOA, please see http://www.cancer.gov/researchandfunding/contacts for Scientific/Research Contacts at NCI.
Purpose: The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) funding opportunity supports the development of new research activities in all areas of cancer research. The R21 mechanism is intended to encourage exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on a field of cancer research (biomedical, behavioral, or clinical).

This Funding Opportunity Announcement is aimed at satisfying one of the needs created by the parallel achievements and increased interdependence of the biological and computing sciences. This interdependence offers an unprecedented opportunity for sophisticated approaches to computer-enabled research in the biological, clinical, and behavioral sciences. The purpose of this program announcement is to assure the availability and continued usefulness of existing biomedical informatics/computational biology software. This program announcement is meant for existing software that serves a biological, clinical, or behavioral community of users. Applications under this program announcement can seek support to improve the existing software in several different ways listed below. Any of these improvements should benefit the existing user community and/or have high potential for attracting significantly more users.
