Extraordinary Opportunities for Early Cancer Detection and Risk Assessment Research

Cancer Prevention Research Small Grant Program


This program announcement is designed to increase the basic and applied scientific knowledge of cancer prevention research and enhance community-based clinical research in cancer prevention. The initiative invites applications for developmental research in chemoprevention agent development, biomarkers, early detection and nutrition science. Early detection includes identification, development and evaluation of analytic techniques, methodologies and clinical technologies relevant to preclinical cancer detection and prevention (cellular, molecular and genetic tumor markers, molecular epidemiology and genetic risk factors and imaging technology). The program announcement will also support investigators to validate a target or to develop an assay based on the target.
