SBIR/STTR: Circulating Cells and DNA in Cancer Detection

RFA-CA-06-001
Letter of Intent Receipt Dates: Jan. 17, 2005; May 16, 2005; Sept. 14, 2005
Application Receipt Dates: Feb. 14, 2005; June 13, 2005; Oct. 12, 2005

NCI's Division of Cancer Prevention invites small business applications for research projects to develop novel technologies for capturing, enriching, and preserving exfoliated abnormal cells and circulating DNA from body fluids or effusions and to develop methods to concentrate these cells and DNA for cancer biomarker detection.

This RFA will use the SBIR and STTR mechanisms.

Exfoliated Cells, Bioactive Food Components, and Cancer

PA-04-114
Application Receipt Dates: July 1, 2004; Nov. 1, 2004; March 1, 2005; July 1, 2005; Nov. 1, 2005; March 1, 2006; July 1, 2006; Nov. 1, 2006; March 1, 2007; July 1, 2007; Nov. 1, 2007

NCI invites applications for new grants that focus on research to critically evaluate the use of exfoliated cells to monitor the physiological effects of dietary bioactive food components thought to be involved with cancer prevention. The objective is to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations between scientists engaged in research using exfoliated cells and those conducting nutrition research related to cancer prevention.

This research will help determine the utility of exfoliated cells as a model system to monitor both the absorption and retention of bioactive food components and the concomitant alterations in genomic and epigenetic events that occur in intact cells.

This PA will use the NIH Investigator-Initiated Research Project Grant (R01), the NIH Exploratory/ Developmental grant (R21), and the NIH Small Grants Program (R03) as award mechanisms.

Understanding and Promoting Health Literacy (R01)

PAR-04-116
Letter of Intent Receipt Dates: Sept. 13, 2004; Sept. 13, 2005; Sept. 13, 2006
Application Receipt Dates: Oct. 13, 2004; Oct. 13, 2005; Oct. 13, 2006

The goal of this PA is to increase scientific understanding of the nature of health literacy and its relationship to healthy behaviors, illness prevention and treatment, chronic disease management, health disparities, risk assessment of environmental factors, and health outcomes including mental and oral health. Such knowledge will help enable health care and public health systems to serve individuals and populations more effectively and to employ strategies that reduce health disparities in the population.

This PA will use the R01 award mechanism.
