Funder: National Institutes of Health

Due Date: 9/28/2018

Budget: $600,000

Opportunity: RFA-CA-18-008

http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-CA-18-008.html

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage revision applications (formerly called “competing revisions”) from currently funded NCI U54 Resource-Related Research Projects proposing to expand upon original research question(s) from specific projects or otherwise accelerate progress for the parent study by incorporating a new technical approach or instrument developed through support from the NCI Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies (IMAT) program. Awards from this FOA are meant to incentivize independent validation and accelerate the suitability of these emerging technologies for appropriate research communities.

As a component of the NCI IMAT program, this FOA aims to promote interdisciplinary collaboration in the development of innovative tools and methods that enable cancer research and accelerate scientific discovery.
