The PREVENT program is a peer-reviewed agent development program designed to support preclinical development of innovative interventions and biomarkers for cancer prevention and interception towards clinical trials. All interested researchers with novel concepts are eligible to apply. PREVENT is not a grant program, but allocates NCI contract resources and expertise to generate data and materials, which are used by the applicants for further development. PREVENT’s current research priority areas include immunoprevention, chemoprevention, and clinically translatable biomarkers.
