Biomarker, Imaging and Quality of Life Studies Funding Program (BIQSFP)
Funded National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) and NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Research Bases are invited to apply for funding to support biomarker, imaging, and quality of life studies with or without Cost-Effectiveness Analysis (CEA) proposals which are associated with NCI clinical trial concepts.
Integral and/or integrated studies associated with Phase 3 treatment trials and cancer prevention trials are eligible. Only randomized Phase 3 clinical trials are eligible for CEA proposals. Support of Phase 2 clinical trials is limited to large (≥ 100 patients), randomized treatment trials with an integral and/or integrated biomarker or imaging study(ies).
