Past Other NCI & NIH InitiativesRSS

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.

  • PA-10-036: Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32)

    The objective of the NRSA program is to provide predoctoral and postdoctoral research training opportunities for individuals interested in pursuing research careers in biomedical, behavioral and clinical research. Each NIH Institute and Center has a unique scientific purview and different program goals and initiatives that evolve over time. It is therefore critical that all applicants consult with the scientific/research contact at the relevant NIH Institute or Center for current information about program priorities and policies before preparing an application. This action is of utmost importance because applications with marginal or no relevance to the NIH awarding components participating in this funding opportunity announcement will not be accepted for review or considered for funding.

    • Expiration Date: January 8, 2013
    • Contacts:

      Houston Baker, Ph.D., NCI, Phone 301-594-9117, Email: bakerhou@mail.nih.gov

    The EBRG can support: 1) innovative, high-risk, high pay-off projects; 2) exploration of new approaches or concepts to a particular substantive area; 3) research and development of new technologies, techniques or methods; or 4) initial research and development of data upon which significant future research may be built. In keeping with the intent of the R21 program, there may or may not be any preliminary results.

    Participating institutes are NIBIB, NICHD, NCI, NEI, NHLBI, NHGRI, NIA, NIAAA, NIAMS, NIDCD, NIDCR, NIDA, NIEHS, NIMH, and NINDS..

  • PA-10-009: Bioengineering Research Grants (BRG)(R01)

    • Release Date: October 14, 2009
    • Application Receipt Date: Standard dates apply
    • Expiration Date: January 8, 2013
    • Contacts:

      Houston Baker, Ph.D., NCI, Phone 301-594-9117, Email: bakerhou@mail.nih.gov

    Participating Institutes and Centers invite applications for R01 awards to support Bioengineering Research Grants (BRGs) for basic and applied multi-disciplinary research that addresses important biological, bioengineering or medical research problems. The BRGs support multi-disciplinary research performed in a single laboratory or by a small number of investigators that applies an integrative, systems approach to develop knowledge and/or methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat disease or to understand health and behavior. A BRG application may propose hypothesis-driven, discovery-driven, developmental, or design-directed research.
