Planning Grant for Minority Institution/Cancer Center Collaboration
NCI invites planning grant applications (P20s) to help researchers and faculty at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) in collaboration with the researchers and faculty of NCI-designated Cancer Centers (or other institutions with highly organized, integrated research efforts focused on cancer) plan and implement focused collaborations in cancer research, cancer research training, or cancer education. The sole intent of this planning grant is to provide support for cancer projects and programs for a limited duration of time to perform feasibility studies and obtain preliminary data that will lead to the submission of specific competitive grant applications traditionally supported by NCI and others.
This PA's funding opportunity will use the NIH planning grant (P20) award mechanism(s).
