Opportunities for Researchers

In addition to encouraging scientific ideas for researchers through investigator-initiated applications and omnibus solicitations, DCCPS develops and participates in NIH funding opportunities aimed at stimulating new directions in specific research to examine, discover, and test methodologies to improve public health. The following are examples of recent funding opportunity announcements to encourage research projects in emerging or priority areas:

  • Modular R01s in Cancer Control and Population Sciences (PAR-21-190)
  • Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (PAR-19-274, PAR-19-275, PAR-19-276)
  • Dissemination and Implementation Science for Cancer Prevention and Control in Low Resource Environments (NOT-CA-20-025)
  • Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): De-implementation of Ineffective or Low-value Clinical Practices along the Cancer Care Continuum (NOT-CA-20-021)
  • Expanding Cancer Control Research in Persistent Poverty Areas (NOT-CA-21-071)
  • Intervention Research to Improve Native American Health (PAR-20-214, PAR-20-238)
  • Tailoring Follow-up Care for Survivors Using Risk-Stratified Pathways (NOT-CA-21-019)
  • Alcohol and Cancer Control (NOT-CA-20-034)
  • Telehealth in Cancer Care (NOT-CA-21-043)
  • Linking the Provider Recommendation to Adolescent HPV Vaccine Uptake (PAR-19-358, PAR-19-359, PAR-19-360)

  • New Information Technology-Enabled Care Delivery Models to Improve Depression Care in Cancer (NOT-CA-21-085)
  • Clinical Characterization of Cancer Therapy-induced Adverse Sequelae and Mechanism-based Interventional Strategies (PAR-19-325)
  • Use of Biological Information to Understand How the Interplay of Environmental Exposures and Genes Influences Cancer Risk (NOT-CA-20-002)
  • Innovative Approaches to Studying Cancer Communication in the New Information Ecosystem (PAR-19-348, PAR-19-350)
  • Geospatial Approaches in Cancer Control and Population Sciences (NOT-CA-20-004)
