NIH White Paper Request

  1. UIP: The National Cancer Institute (NCI) announces the creation of the Unconventional Innovations Program (UIP). This program will implement a new approach to funding the development of high impact, long range technologies to support cancer research. Initial plans target an investment of $48 million into the UIP over the next 5 years. The UIP will focus on the development of technology platforms that can support integrated strategies for early detection, diagnosis, and treatment. At this time NCI is soliciting input from the scientific community about technological opportunities that could contribute to this goal and fundamentally change the way we detect, diagnose, and treat cancer. Information you provide will contribute to the general scope of a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to be issued in late 1998 or early 1999. To allow time for consideration of all White Papers and comments, it is requested that White papers and comments be submitted on or before November 27, 1998.

The Diagnostic Imaging Program at NCI has created this e-mail distribution list to notify interested people about funding opportunities and other issues related to imaging research. Its primary purpose is to call your attention to important, relevant information on NIH Web pages, or in the NIH Guide. Occasionally it may be used to clarify areas of confusion, or disseminate answers to frequently asked questions.

If you wish to remain on the list, no action is necessary.

If you wish to be added to the list (or removed from it), please contact Johnnie Smith by return e-mail (

The staff of the Diagnostic Imaging Program places a high priority on communicating with and facilitating the work of researchers in the imaging community. We look forward to working with you.
