School-Based Interventions To Prevent Obesity
This PA encourages the formation of partnerships between academic institutions and school systems in order to develop and implement controlled, school-based intervention strategies designed to reduce the prevalence of obesity in childhood. This initiative also encourages evaluative comparisons of different intervention strategies, as well as the use of methods to detect synergistic interactions between different types of interventions.
This PA will use the NIH Research Project Grant (R01), Small Grant (R03), and Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) award mechanisms.

Pilot and Feasibility Program in Urology
The NIDDK and NCI invite applications from investigators with research interests in urology. The primary intent of this initiative is to foster the development of high-risk pilot and feasibility research by investigators developing a new line of research. Information thus obtained would allow subsequent submission of R01 applications focusing on research problems relevant to the study of urologic diseases and their complications. This PA replaces PA-02-013.
This PA will use the Exploratory/ Developmental Grant R21 award mechanism.

Cancer Prevention Research Small Grant Program
The Division of Cancer Prevention of NCI invites applications that address developmental research in chemoprevention agents, biomarkers, early detection, and nutrition science as well as clinical studies that focus on specific target organs. Small grants are short-term awards that provide support for pilot projects, development and testing of new methodologies, or innovative projects that provide a basis for more extended research. This PA replaces PAR-02-176.
This PA will use the NIH Small Grants Program (R03) award mechanism.
