Upcoming Webinar

April 19, 2017 (3 – 4 p.m. EDT) – Funding Announcement Webinar on Cancer-related Behavioral Research through Integrating Existing Data

Register Now exit disclaimer

This webinar will provide an overview of the R01 and R21 funding opportunity announcement, Cancer-related Behavioral Research through Integrating Existing Data PAR-16-256 (R01) and PAR-16-255 (R21).

This funding opportunity seeks research that integrates two or more independent data sets to answer novel cancer control and prevention questions. Applicants are encouraged to incorporate Integrative Data Analysis (IDA) methods that examine cancer-related behavioral risk factors. Examples of these risk factors include tobacco use, sedentary behavior, poor weight management, lack of medical adherence to screening, and poor vaccine uptake.

Todd HorowitzThis webinar provides an overview about the new R01 and R21 funding opportunity announcement, Perception and Cognition Research to Inform Cancer Image Interpretation (PAR-17-125 [R01] and PAR-17-124 [R21]).

This new funding opportunity aims to facilitate research on the perceptual and cognitive processes underlying the performance of cancer image observers in radiology and pathology. The scientific scope of this opportunity will yield insights to improve the accuracy of cancer detection and diagnosis.

Moderator Dr. Paige Green provides an overview and summary of resources. Speaker Dr. Todd Horowitz, PhD presents details of the FOA. Drs. Lalitha Shankar and Vinay Pai provide technical assistance.
