- Educational and research dissemination activities are essential components of NCI's efforts to reduce morbidity and mortality due to cancer.
-This funding opportunity provides support: for innovative educational programs to motivate biomedical and other health science students to pursue cancer related careers; for short courses to update cancer research scientists in new scientific methods, technologies and findings; and for training of cancer care clinicians and community health care providers in evidence-based cancer prevention and control approaches.
- The funding opportunity also supports grants to develop effective approaches to dissemination of research knowledge related to cancer prevention and control. In this funding opportunity research dissemination refers to innovative education approaches designed to translate knowledge gained from science (discovery) into public health and community applications (delivery).
- Because the nature and scope of the proposed educational approach will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
- This funding opportunity uses the R25 mechanism to provide up to five years of funding at up to $300,000 per year in direct costs.
- Eligible organizations include for-profit and not-for-profit, public or private organizations, units of state and local governments, eligible agencies of the Federal Government, domestic institutions/organizations, faith-based or community-based organizations, and Native American tribal organizations.
- Eligible principal investigators are any individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research.
