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.


  • Exploratory Grants in Cancer Control (PAR-21-341)
  • Modular R01s in Cancer Control and Population Sciences (PAR-21-190)
  • Cancer Epidemiology Cohorts: Building the Next Generation of Research Cohorts (PAR-22-161)
  • Research Opportunities in Established Cancer Epidemiology Cohort Studies (PAR-22-162)
  • Impacts of Climate Change Across the Cancer Control Continuum (R01 Clinical Trial Optional) (PAR-23-152, PAR-23-153)
  • Understanding Expectancies in Cancer Symptom Management (R01 Clinical Trial Required) (PAR-23-273)
