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.
- Feasibility Studies for Collaborative Interaction for Minority Institution/Cancer Center Partnership (P20)
Invites applications for linked awards to assist researchers and faculty at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) in conducting feasibility studies and establishing collaborative partnerships with researchers/faculty of NCI-designated Cancer Centers (or other institutions with highly-organized, integrated research efforts focused on cancer).
- 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.
