Funding Opportunities

Administrative Supplements to Promote Cancer Prevention and Control Research in Low and Middle Income Countries (Admin Supp)

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), through its Center for Global Health (CGH), seeks to promote cancer prevention and control (CPC) research in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) through collaborations and research partnerships between the NCI-designated cancer centers and partner institutions in LMICs. Through this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), the NCI will provide administrative supplement awards to currently-funded P30 NCI-designated cancer center grantees to support pilot research plans that focus on cancer prevention and control. These supplements are designed to stimulate and strengthen CPC twinning programs between researchers at the NCI-designated cancer centers and institutions in LMICs. It is anticipated that outcomes of this supplement will include collaborative research grants between investigators at the NCI-designated cancer centers and LMIC institutions.

Cancer Detection, Diagnosis, and Treatment Technologies for Global Health (UH2/UH3)

The National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering have developed a funding opportunity to support the development of cancer-relevant technologies suitable for use in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Specifically, the FOA solicits applications for projects to adapt, apply, and validate existing or emerging technologies into a new generation of user-friendly, low-cost devices or assays that are clinically comparable to currently used technologies for imaging, in vitro detection/diagnosis, prevention or treatment of cancers in humans living in LMICs.

Training Opportunities

  • CGH Short Term Scientist Exchange Program (STSEP)

    The STSEP promotes collaborative research between established U.S. and foreign scientists from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and upper-middle income countries by supporting, in part, exchange visits of cancer researchers between U.S. and foreign laboratories that are six months or less.

  • NCI Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention Program

    This program offers two short-term cancer prevention training courses in Rockville, MD to international scientists and healthcare professionals from LMICs, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Programme of Action for Cancer Therapy (IAEA-PACT), and the All-Ireland Cancer Consortium (AICC).
