2020 Cancer Research Training Travel Awards for Low- and Middle-Income Country (LMIC) Investigators
NCI’s Center for Global Health, in collaboration with other NCI divisions, supports collaborative research between U.S. investigators and investigators in LMICs to expand capacity in performing high-quality cancer research in LMICs. In support of this program, CRDF Global is now accepting proposals from institutions/organizations for the 2020 Cancer Research Training Travel Awards for Low- and middle-income Country (LMIC) Investigators. The deadline to submit applications is October 19, 2019.
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to stimulate the development of novel microbial-based cancer therapies, especially for conditions where conventional cancer therapies are inadequate, such as poorly vascularized, hypoxic, solid tumors, dormant or slowly dividing cells resistant to current interventions, and brain tumors. PAR-19-194 (R21 for early stage research); PAR-19-193 (R01 for mature projects). Examples of Applications: (RO1, R21s).
Cancer Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment Technologies for Low-Resource Settings (Clinical Trial Optional)
These funding opportunities encourage Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR and STTR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) proposing commercially-directed research for the development of cancer prevention, diagnosis, or treatment technologies to improve cancer outcomes in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), and low-resource settings in the U.S. PAR-18-801 (R43/R44); PAR-18-802 (R41/42). For more information about these funding opportunities, download presentations from the NCI SBIR-CGH Joint Informational Webinar: SBIR-CGH Webinar1; SBIR-CGH Webinar2.
Note: Direct-to-Phase II is allowed for PAR-18-801 https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-CA-19-003.html.
Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (Clinical Trial Optional)
This funding opportunity encourages research grant applications that will identify, develop, test, evaluate and/or refine strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based practices into public health, clinical practice, and community settings. PAR-19-274 (R01); PAR-19-275 (R21).
This funding opportunity encourages research grant applications that will identify, develop, evaluate and refine effective and efficient methods, systems, infrastructures, and strategies to disseminate and implement evidence-based health practices for public health, clinical practice, and community settings.
International Research Scientist Development Award (K01)
This funding opportunity supports intensive, mentored research career development for early stage investigators committed to a cancer research career. PAR-18-539 (Independent clinical trial not allowed). PAR-18-540 (Independent clinical trial required). For additional information, please visit Frequently Asked Questions for the International Research Scientist Development Award.
This funding opportunity supports U.S.- Caribbean collaborative research to develop or extend cohort or surveillance studies on chronic disease in the Caribbean region, aligned with existing, publicly available U.S. datasets.
These funding opportunities highlight research initiatives that align with the efforts of the Cancer Moonshot. Supported with existing or 21st Century Cures Act funds, featured announcements include open funding opportunities.
This funding opportunity supports high quality scientific conferences that are relevant to the NIH's mission and to the public health.

The Short-Term Scientist Exchange Program at the Center for Global Health, National Cancer Institute, promotes collaborative research between researchers at the NCI and foreign cancer researchers.
The U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) Center for Global Health post-baccalaureate fellowship provides recent college graduates who are planning to apply to graduate or professional (public health/research/medical/dental/nursing/pharmacy, etc.) school an opportunity to learn about supporting the cancer research enterprise at NCI. Fellows work with NCI staff to develop and implement projects that aim to strengthen cancer research globally. The fellowship includes a capstone project. The NCI Center for Global Health is particularly interested in applicants who have either volunteered or worked in a low- or middle-income country or with disadvantaged populations in high-income countries.
This program offers two short-term cancer prevention training courses in Rockville, MD to international scientists and healthcare professionals from LMICs and the All-Ireland Cancer Consortium (AICC).
