Funding Opportunities

For comprehensive information about NCI funding priorities and opportunities, go to http://www.cancer.gov/researchandfunding.

The NIH Roadmap for Medical Research Funding provides a framework of the priorities NIH must address to optimize its research portfolio. It identifies the most compelling opportunities in three main areas: new pathways to discovery, research teams of the future, and re-engineering the clinical research enterprise. For complete information on Roadmap funding opportunities, go to http://nihroadmap.nih.gov. Newly released Roadmap funding opportunities are listed below.

Interdisciplinary Training: Behavior, Environment and Biology
RFA-RM-05-010
This postdoctoral, institutional National Research Service Award (NRSA) will support the establishment of innovative programs that provide formal coursework and research training in a new interdisciplinary field to individuals holding advanced degrees in a different discipline. This RFA will use the Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA institutional research training grant (T32) mechanism.

For the complete RFA, go to http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-RM-05-010.html. More information is available at http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/interdisciplinary/index.asp.

Molecular Libraries Screening Instrumentation - SBIR/STTR
PA-05-014
This PA invites research applications to develop innovative instrumentation to maximize the efficiency and augment the capabilities of molecular library high-throughput screening systems. This PA will use the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) mechanisms, and accompanies a Request for Applications of similar scientific intent (RFA RM-04-020) that will use the traditional research project grant (R01) mechanism.

For the complete PA, go to http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-05-014.html. More information is available at http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/molecularlibraries/index.asp.

Pilot-Scale Libraries for High-Throughput Screening
RFA-RM-05-014
This RFA invites applications for funding from the NIH Molecular Libraries Roadmap program for the generation of pilot-scale chemical diversity libraries. These libraries will be used for high-throughput biological screening by the Molecular Libraries Screening Center Network (MLSCN). The NIH Biotechnology Resource Grant (P41) award mechanism will be used. This is a one-time solicitation for 3-year grants. Letters of Intent are due January 14, 2005.
