Pharmacogenetics Research Network and Knowledge Base

RFA-GM-04-002
Letter of Intent Receipt Date: July 19, 2004
Application Receipt Date: Aug. 19, 2004

Applications are invited for an open recompetition of the Pharmacogenetics Research Network and Knowledge Base. This is a network of multidisciplinary, collaborative groups of investigators that contribute their data to the publicly available knowledge base PharmGKB, which is an open research tool accessible to all scientists. NCI is interested in projects that can potentially lead to meaningful improvements in clinical and survival end points and in studies of genetic variability in human populations that may influence risk of preneoplastic conditions or primary and secondary malignancies after exposure to medications, including cancer therapies.
