DCB Funding Opportunity and Grants-Related Resources

DCB provides public resources related to funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) and NCI grant policies to cancer researchers. Information and access to these resources is included below.

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.

The workshop is designed for DCB grantees who have received their first independent NIH grant within the last year. New grantees are identified by the Division, and attendance is by invitation only.

The workshop covers:

  • Structure, roles, and inter-relationships of NIH, NCI, and DCB
  • Branches within DCB
  • NIH peer review process
  • Competitive renewal applications
  • Sources of supplemental funding
  • Grantee responsibilities in managing their awards
  • NCI Research Resources

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

Questions should be directed to Dr. Joanna Watson.
