Translational Studies on Adducts for Cancer Risk Identification and Prevention (U01)


This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages clinically-relevant translational/epidemiological research projects focused on the use of adducts to cellular macromolecules, as indicators of exposures to cancer risk factors in human populations and subgroups. The priority is on projects that will focus on adductomic approaches, i.e., address some aspects of the totality of adducts. The projects are expected to be based on comprehensive use of human biospecimens for which detailed medical data are available (e.g., biospecimens from the NCI-supported cohort studies). The main emphasis of this FOA is on advancing the area of cancer detection, cancer prevention, and assessing cancer risks in human populations and subgroups. Nonetheless, studies evaluating the potential roles of adducts in cancer etiology for gene-environment interaction research may also be appropriate provided that such projects are based on appropriate sets of human biospecimens (such as specimens from cohorts studies supported by NIH).
