DCB Funding Opportunity and Grants-Related Resources

The NCI Division of Cancer Biology (DCB) provides public resources related to notices of funding opportunities (NOFOs) and NCI grant policies to cancer researchers. 

New Grantee Workshop 

DCB offers an annual workshop for new and early-stage investigators to familiarize them with the processes and standards of DCB, NCI and NIH. It is designed for DCB grantees who have received their first independent NIH grant within the last year. 

It includes breakout sessions with DCB Program Directors and a seminar from an NCI-funded mid-career cancer researcher.

Below is the agenda and the presentations from the January 2024 Workshop (posted with permission from each author; please do not use without consent):

Session 1: The NCI and Your New Investigator Grant

Session 2: Supporting Your Team and Expanding Your Research Enterprise 

Session 3: Review, Renew, and Promote Your Science

Questions about the workshop should be directed to Dr. Joanna Watson.
