Funding for Colorectal Cancer Research

Nov. 15, 2017

NCI is offering $3 million in research funding for colorectal cancer screening research.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has a variety of funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) for cancer research including two awards for colorectal cancer (CRC) screening. NCI intends to commit $600,000 in FY 2018 to fund one Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS): Coordinating Center (U24) award, and $2.4 million to fund three Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS)(UG3/UH3) awards. The purpose of these FOAs is to promote research in CRC screening, follow-up and referral-to-care among target populations for whom screening rates are below national standards.

If you're interested in learning more before you apply, NCI will be hosting a pre-application webinar for Accelerating Colorectal Cancer Screening and follow-up through Implementation Science (ACCSIS) this Friday at 11 a.m. ET.
