Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer
NCI invites center grant applications to establish the Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Centers in nutrition, energetics, energy balance, and physical activity. These Centers will involve scientists from multiple disciplines and will encompass projects spanning the biology and genetics of behavioral, sociocultural, and environmental influences on nutrition, physical activity, weight, energy balance, and energetics.
The RFA will use the U54 NIH cooperative agreement award mechanism.

TREC Coordination Center
The Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, NCI, invites applications for cooperative agreements to support the establishment of a Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Coordination Center. This Coordination Center will support the TREC Centers, which focus upon the research areas of nutrition, energetics, energy balance, and physical activity. The primary missions of the Coordination Center is to foster collaborations among transdisciplinary teams of scientists, to facilitate data analyses, to examine common research questions across sites, to coordinate and facilitate semi-annual meetings of the TREC Centers, to develop training modules, and to evaluate progress.
The RFA will use the U01 NIH cooperative agreement award mechanism.

NCI will hold a pre-application phone conference to which all prospective applicants for RFA-CA-05-010 and RFA-CA-05-011 are invited. For more information, go to http://www.scgcorp.com/trec-call2004.
Supplements To Promote Reentry Into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers
The participating institutes and centers of the NIH along with the Office of Research on Women's Health announces a continuing program for administrative supplements to research grants to support individuals with high potential to reenter an active research career after taking time off to care for children or attend to other family responsibilities. It is anticipated that at the completion of the supplement, the reentry scientist will be in a position to apply for a career development (K) award, a research award, or some other form of independent research support.
The following active NIH award mechanisms at domestic institutions are eligible: R01, R10, R18, R24, R35, R37, P01, P40, P41, P50, P51, U54, P60, U01, and U10.
