Reports, Research, and Literature
NCI has produced and collaborated on several reports that address the special challenges facing young people with cancer. A chapter in NCI’s SEER Cancer Statistics Review also focuses on cancers unique to adolescents and young adults and the variations in disease patterns within this age group. A monograph details information about cancer incidence and outcomes in adolescents and young adults. Additional young adult cancer-related research and reports include:
- NCI Funded Research Portfolio
A database that contains information about research grant and contract awards made by the National Cancer Institute.
- Resources for Researchers
A directory of research tools and services for cancer researchers.
- NIH Funding Opportunities and Notices
Access to RFAs, PAs, and NIH medical and behavioral research grant policies and guidelines.
- Closing the Gap: Research and Care Imperatives for Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer
This comprehensive report from the Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Progress Review Group (PRG) is a collaborative effort between NCI and the Lance Armstrong Foundation. It outlines recommendations for improving the outcomes for adolescents and young adults with cancer.
