Biomarker, Imaging, and Quality of Life Studies Funding Program (BIQSFP)
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN) Groups and NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Research Bases to apply for funding to support biomarker, imaging, and symptom science/quality of life (symptom science/QOL) studies. All studies must be associated with NCI clinical trial concepts or protocols.
Studies must be associated with the following types of trials conducted by NCTN Groups or NCORP Research Bases and reviewed by the NCI Steering Committees:
- Randomized phase 2 or phase 3 treatment trials
- Randomized phase 2 or phase 3 prevention trials
- Randomized symptom science/supportive care clinical trials
- Non-randomized phase 2 or phase 3 treatment trials (integral studies only)
