Oncology Co-Clinical Imaging Research Resources to Encourage Consensus on Quantitative Imaging Methods and Precision Medicine (U24)

Tuesday, November 17, 2015
 

Summary:
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite Cooperative Agreement (U24) applications to develop research resources that will encourage a consensus on how Quantitative Imaging (QI) methods are optimized to improve correlation of results for co-clinical trials.

The scientific goals of this FOA are to: (a) perform the appropriate optimization of the pre-clinical quantitative imaging methods, (b) implement the optimized methods in the co-clinical trial, and finally (c) populate a web-accessible research resource with all the data, methods, workflow documentation, and results collected from the co-clinical investigations.

Co-clinical trials are defined in this FOA as investigations in patients and in parallel (or sequentially) in mouse or human-in-mouse models of cancer that mirror the genetics and biology of the patients' malignancies or pre-cancerous lesions.

The co-clinical trial should include either (a) a therapeutic goal, such as the prediction, staging, and/or measurement of tumor response to therapies, or (b) a screening and early detection or a cancer risk stratification goal for lethal cancer versus non-lethal disease.

Applicants are encouraged to organize multi-disciplinary teams with experience in mouse models research, human investigations, , imaging platforms, QI methods, decision support software and informatics to populate the research resource.
