The goal of this Program Announcement with set-aside funds (PAS) is to promote studies that 1) identify the causes of brain tumor cells dispersal, 2) determine the interactions of migrating tumor cells with normal brain elements, and 3) develop interventions that target invading tumor cells. Interdisciplinary studies that apply new concepts and methodologies from developmental neuroscience, genomics, precursor cell biology, and other related fields to the analysis of tumor spread are particularly encouraged.
This PAS will use the NIH research project grant (R01) and exploratory/developmental grant (R21) award mechanisms.
