Research Funding Opportunities
CRCHD receives grant applications from the NCI Division of Extramural Activities (DEA) according to NCI referral guidelines. CRCHD does not have any open funding announcements at the present time. However, we are currently accepting unsolicited applications in cancer disparities. We encourage prospective applicants to speak with the Program Directors at the Center for more information.
For useful information about current funding opportunities in health disparities, as well as general information about the grants process, visit the websites below. View information on the grant application process and how to apply for funding.
Funding Opportunities related to Health Disparities
- Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities (U01)
Through this FOA, cooperative agreement research grant applications are invited from investigators interested in conducting basic research studies into the causes and mechanisms of cancer health disparities.
- Exploratory Grant Award to Promote Workforce Diversity in Basic Cancer Research (R21)
The purpose is to improve the diversity of the research workforce by supporting eligible investigators from minority and underrepresented groups to conduct research projects focused on the basic biology of cancer.
- Exploratory/Developmental Grants Program for Basic Cancer Research in Cancer Health Disparities (R21)
Support available for researchers from diverse populations, such as CURE and MI/CCP investigators, to conduct basic research studies into the causes and mechanisms of cancer health disparities.
- New! Feasibility Studies to Build Collaborative Partnerships in Cancer Research (P20)
for the implementation of collaborative partnership awards between Institutions serving communities with cancer health disparities and NCI-designated Cancer Centers (or groups of Centers).
- The Role of Microbial Metabolites in Cancer Prevention and Etiology (U01)
Funding announcement that encourages the effects of microbially generated metabolites of dietary components on host cell biology and seeks to characterize and better understand microbially generated metabolites and their molecular mechanisms of action.
NCI/NIH Featured Opportunities
- New! Library of Integrated Network-Based Cellular Signatures (LINCS): Perturbation-Induced Data and Signature Generation Centers (U54)
This FOA seeks to establish a large-scale data production effort to systematize approaches for identifying mechanism-based associations between the effects of disparate biological perturbations, by means of signatures.
- Planning Grants for the NIH Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) Initiative (P20)
This FOA encourages institutions with expertise and innovative strategies for developing research and mentoring opportunities for undergraduate students from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research to submit applications for 6 month planning grants for the NIH Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity (BUILD) initiative.
- Planning Grants for the NIH National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) (P20)
The purpose of this FOA is to encourage organizations with experience in the mentorship of individuals underrepresented in the biomedical research workforce to submit planning grant applications for the NIH National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN).
- NIH Director's Biomedical Research Workforce Innovation Award: Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) (DP7)
The purpose of this FOA is to seek, identify and support bold and innovative approaches to broaden graduate and postdoctoral training so trainees ultimately may pursue and that are required for a robust biomedical, behavioral, social and clinical research enterprise.
- Closing the Gap in Healthcare Disparities through Dissemination and Implementation of Patient Centered Outcomes Research (U18)
This FOA from the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) is to invite Research Education Grant (R25) applications to develop, implement, evaluate and disseminate short courses in innovative methods for behavioral and social sciences research (BSSR).
- Short Courses on Innovative Methodologies in the Behavioral and Social Sciences (R25)
This FOA identifies strategies to engage stakeholders through shared decision making that can be used to effectively implement interventions specific to health care delivery systems, clinicians, and/or patients that focus on the reduction of racial/ethnic healthcare disparities in under-resourced settings.
- Request for Information (RFI) Regarding Opportunities for Cancer-relevant Innovative Technologies with Transformative Potential
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to seek input from members of the cancer research community on the most important needs and promising opportunities for the development of technologies with strong potential for accelerating cancer research or clinical care.
- Bridging the Gap Between Cancer Mechanism and Population Science (U01)
This FOA encourages applications for projects that should be able to cross-validate data gathered at different scales, and explore links between basic biology, population science, and potential health applications in treatment, prevention, diagnosis, and/or screening.
- NIMHD Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers for Health Disparities Research (U54)
The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support the development of Transdisciplinary Collaborative Centers (TCCs) focused specifically on health policy research.
- Studies to evaluate cellular heterogeneity using transcriptional profiling of single cells (U01)
The purpose of this FOA is to support projects to examine the transcriptional signatures of individual human cells in order to measure and analyze cellular heterogeneity and to define specific cell types and/or cell "states" in a given population.
- 2012 Introduction to Cancer Research Careers (ICRC) Program
The goal of this program is to encourage a diverse group of talented students to explore careers in biomedical research. Please follow the link above for more information.
- SBIR Phase II Bridge Award
Learn more about these awards designed to support the next stage of development for previously funded NIH-wide SBIR Phase II projects.
- SBIR-STTR Omnibus Grant Funding Opportunities
Please take advantage of these FOAs intended to support small business innovation research across a broad spectrum of topic areas.
- NCI SBIR Announces 12 New Contract Funding Opportunities
NCI's Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) has announced that 12 new contract funding opportunities are available to small businesses in order to support and successfully finance innovative cancer-related technologies towards commercialization.
- Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards for Individual Predoctoral Fellowships (F31) to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research
Funding available for a predoctoral fellowship to promote diversity of the health-related research workforce. The initiative supports research training leading to the PhD and MD/PhD degree, or equivalent in biomedical, behavioral, health services, or clinical sciences.
