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 and to support the next generation of cancer researchers.
