The purpose of the Exercise and Nutrition Interventions to Improve Cancer Treatment-Related Outcomes (ENICTO) in Cancer Survivors consortium is to fill a research gap concerning the efficacy of specific exercise and dietary approaches to improve cancer treatment-related outcomes for cancer therapies delivered with curative or life-extending intent. By working in collaboration, the consortium will also pursue research questions that are not possible by individual project sites and seek to generate information furthering translation into clinical care.
In 2021, NCI published two funding opportunity announcements, RFA-CA-21-031 and RFA-CA-21-032, inviting applications for clinical trial research projects (U01) and a coordinating center (U24) for the ENICTO consortium.

A performance site conducts research activities but does not necessarily serve as a recruitment site.
The Exercise and Nutrition Interventions to Improve Cancer Treatment-Related Outcomes (ENICTO) in Cancer Survivors consortium consists of multiple research project grants (U01) and one coordinating center (U24).
