This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is associated with the Beau Biden Cancer MoonshotSM Initiative that is intended to accelerate cancer research.

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to create a U24 Coordinating Center that will integrate and facilitate trans-disciplinary research across the Drug Resistance and Sensitivity Centers (DRSCs), established under an earlier released RFA-CA-17-009 for U54 specialized centers.

The DRSCs are designed to target the following area designated as a scientific priority by the Blue Ribbon Panel (BRP): Establish a network of multi-disciplinary research teams to study mechanisms of tumor resistance and sensitivity and develop innovative anti-cancer therapy strategies.  The Coordinating Center to be established under this FOA will facilitate the activities of the DRSCs and help integrate the results of their studies.
