Other News & Announcements
NCI Request for Information: Opportunities for Cancer-Relevant Innovative Technologies with Transformative Potential
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is looking for feedback from cancer researchers, clinicians, and other interested members of the community through a Request for Information (RFI). The purpose of the RFI is to seek input on the most important needs and promising opportunities to develop technologies with strong potential for accelerating cancer research or clinical care. NCI is interested in understanding the communities' perspective on areas where state-of-the-art capabilities are insufficient for clinical care or to explore biological or epidemiological facets of cancer. Responses to the RFI will be used for consideration of research priorities and may help to develop future funding opportunities. Responses will be accepted through June 30, 2013 and should be marked with RFI identifier "NOT-CA-13-009." Responses are preferred in electronic format and should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. View the RFI for additional instructions on how to respond: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-CA-13-009.html.
