Advanced Development of Informatics Technology (U24))


Tuesday, November 18, 2014


The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite Cooperative Agreement (U24) applications for advanced development and enhancement of emerging informatics technologies to improve the acquisition, management, analysis, and dissemination of data and knowledge in cancer research. An emerging informatics technology is defined as one that has passed the initial prototyping and pilot development stage, has demonstrated potential to have a significant and broader impact, has compelling reasons for further improvement and enhancement, and has not been widely adopted in the cancer research field. If successful, these technologies would accelerate research in cancer biology, cancer treatment and diagnosis, cancer prevention, cancer control and epidemiology, and/or cancer health disparities. This FOA is one component of the NCI's Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) Initiative whose central mission is to promote research-driven informatics technology development.  Potential applicants who are interested in early-stage development should consult companion FOAs listed above.  Applications that focus on informatics data processing and analysis or mathematical/statistical modeling alone without informatics technology development are not appropriate for this FOA.  

As listed below, there are four additional FOAs issued under the ITCR Initiative that cover additional types of project and support technology development at different stages. Investigators are allowed to submit multiple applications in response to these FOAs given that they are scientifically distinct from each other.
