Below is a selection of webinars focused on research tools and grant opportunities. Please visit the Behavioral Research Grants page or the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) Funding Opportunities page for a complete listing of funding opportunities.
July 13, 2017 (1-2 p.m. EDT) – Webinar on the Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health and Eating (FLASHE) Study: A Resource for Understanding Cancer-Prevention Behaviors Among Parent-Adolescent Dyads
July 13, 2017 (1 - 2 p.m. EDT)
Questions can be posed in advance to email@example.com.
This webinar will discuss aspects of the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-sponsored Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health and Eating (FLASHE) Study, including:
- Publicly available data sets and resources;
- methodology and dyadic features of the study design;
- example findings, such as correlates of health behavior and associations between parents and adolescents on psychosocial and behavioral variables; and
- opportunities for using FLASHE data.

Dr. Wendy Nelson and Ms. Kathleen Castro provide an overview of these funding opportunities that seek research to assess and describe the current state of oral anticancer medication utilization, delivery, and adherence; identify structural, systemic, and psychosocial barriers to adherence; and develop models and strategies to improve safe and effective delivery of these agents so that clinical outcomes are optimized.

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) seeks research that integrates two or more independent data sets to answer novel cancer control and prevention questions. Applicants areeve 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.
Moderator Dr. Jerry Suls provides an overview and background information. Speaker Dr. Richard Moser presents details of the FOA, and technical expert Dr. Michelle Mollica provides information about available data sources.
This 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.
This webinar provides key information about the new R01 and R21 funding opportunity announcement, Tobacco Use and HIV in Low and Middle Income Countries (PAR-17-087 [R01] and PAR-17-086 [R21]). Epidemiologist Dr. Mark Parascandola of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Tobacco Control Research Branch provides an overview of a new funding opportunity that aims to develop and evaluate tobacco cessation interventions tailored to HIV-positive populations - including those with co-morbidities such as tuberculosis (TB) - in low-resource settings in low- and middle-income countries.
This webinar provides information about a new Funding Opportunity Announcement in behavioral research from the National Cancer Institute. Dr. Jerry Suls, Program Director and Senior Scientist, provides an overview of Leveraging Cognitive Neuroscience Research to Improve Assessment of Cancer Treatment Related Cognitive Impairment PAR-16-212 (R01) & PAR-16-213 (R21).

Niall Bolger, Ph.D., and Jean-Philippe (J-P) Laurenceau, Ph.D., introduce viewers to cross-sectional, dyadic analysis using data from the Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) study. Dyadic data present analytic challenges because they have various sources of interdependence (e.g. non-independence between members of the dyad such as a parent and a child). Flexible analytic tools (e.g. path modeling, multilevel modeling) can accommodate these complexities. Viewers will gain introductory-level understanding of dyadic data analysis. Additional resources, such as sample code for preparing data files and conducting dyadic analyses are available on the FLASHE dyadic resources page.

This webinar provides key information about the R01 funding opportunity announcement, Smoking Cessation within the Context of Lung Cancer Screening (RFA-CA- 15-011 [R01]. Program Director and Statistician Stephanie Land of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Tobacco Control Research Branch provide an overview of this funding opportunity that aims to support the development and test and/or implementation of smoking cessation interventions delivered to current smokers who undergo low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) lung cancer screening.
