Advanced Development and Validation of Emerging Technologies for Cancer-Relevant Biospecimen Science (R33)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits grant applications proposing exploratory research projects focused on the advanced development and validation of emerging technologies that improve the quality of the samples used for cancer research or clinical care. This includes technologies that address issues related to pre-analytical degradation of targeted analytes during the collection, processing, handling, and storage of cancer-relevant biospecimens. This FOA solicits R33 applications where proof-of-principle for the emerging technology or methodology has been provided with supportive preliminary data demonstrating a novel capability for maximizing or otherwise interrogating the quality and utility of biological samples used for downstream analyses. Well-suited applications must offer the potential to accelerate and/or enhance research in the areas of cancer biology, early detection and screening, clinical diagnosis, treatment, control, epidemiology, and/or cancer health disparities. Projects proposing to use established technologies where the novelty resides in the biological or clinical question being pursued are not appropriate for this FOA and will not be reviewed.
