Identifying a Sponsor for CGH Scientist Exchange Programs
Scientist exchange programs of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) require that the applicant identify and obtain an invitation from a qualified laboratory which agrees to host the exchange visit. A qualified U.S. host must be either (a) an investigator in the NCI Intramural Program, or (b) a Principal Investigator on an NCI research grant (or a grant from another NIH institute for cancer-related research). A qualified non-U.S. host must be an established scientist recognized in the international peer-reviewed literature.
It is expected that qualified applicants will be aware of potential sponsors in their area of research through familiarity with papers published in international scientific journals. In addition, information on research of NCI intramural scientists is available at http://www.cancer.gov/researchandfunding/intramural/, and information on the entire NCI Research Portfolio (intramural scientists and extramural grantees) is available at http://fundedresearch.cancer.gov/.
