Planning for the Future
Many factors will influence the future of cancer control, including investments in researchers and their training, expansion and diversification of the research community, and calls for research in key areas through requests for grant applications.
Future Directions for Cancer Control
A message from DCCPS Director Robert Croyle, Ph.D., on the factors that will influence the future of cancer control.
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.
Investments in Cancer Control Research
Researchers funded by DCCPS have advanced the science to improve public health for more than two decades. Major programmatic areas include epidemiology and genomics research, behavioral research, health care delivery research, surveillance research, and survivorship research.
Training the Next Generation of Researchers
NCI is the federal government’s principal agency for cancer research and training. DCCPS supports training and career development for cancer researchers working at NCI in Maryland, as well as at institutions around the world.
Expanding and Diversifying the Cancer Control Research Community
DCCPS is committed to increasing inclusivity and diversity in cancer control science. The division places a strong focus on diversity through our programs to train the next generation of researchers. In addition, we are working diligently to establish and promote opportunities for researchers to broaden and expand leadership in science and research.
Stimulating Research in Priority Areas: Research Funding Announcements
Solicitations for grant applications addressing a defined research topic reflect the division’s research priorities. Virtually all requests for applications are a partnership, including a vetting process and input from NIH and the wider research community.
