Research Answers to NCI Pediatric Provocative Questions
May 30, 2016 (Letter of Intent)
June 30, 2016 (Application)
The purpose of this FOA is to invite applications for research projects designed to use sound and innovative strategies to solve specific problems and paradoxes in childhood cancer research identified by the NCI as the NCI Pediatric PQs. These problems and paradoxes framed as questions are meant to challenge cancer researchers to think about and elucidate specific problems in key areas of pediatric cancer research that are deemed important but have not received sufficient attention. Each research project proposed in response to this FOA must be focused on addressing one particular research problem defined by one specific Pediatric PQ selected from the list.
