Clinical Correlative Studies

Active Program Announcements (PA) and Requests for Applications (RFA)

The Cancer Diagnosis Program offers several program announcements to encourage patient-oriented research on new strategies for cancer diagnosis. Some of these announcements are sponsored by the NCI Cancer Therapy Evalution Program to support the integration of translational studies into clinical trials. Investigators may apply for several types of awards in addition to the standard (R01) research project grant.
