Grant Description

Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), invites grant applications for studies that focus on research to define factors affecting energy balance and to define mechanisms influencing cancer risk, prognosis, and quality of life. These studies may range from new analyses of existing datasets to additional collection of data and biological specimens in ongoing investigations. It is anticipated that the knowledge gained will provide additional information to better understand the relationships among energy balance, cancer risk, and prognosis. Mechanism of Support. This FOA uses the NIH research project R01 grant mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-09-149 that encourages applications under the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) Grant mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
