For over 30 years, the Prevent Cancer Foundation has been funding research grants and fellowships that demonstrate potential for impact on cancer prevention/early detection. The goal of the Research Program is to provide funding for innovative projects expected to lead to future funding from other peer-reviewed sources. The grants and fellowships selection process utilizes a research proposal review system similar to that of the National Institutes of Health. 

For the 2022 cycle, we highly encourage proposals focused on melanoma prevention and early detection. 

Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): IMPROVE Initiative: Implementation Science to Advance Maternal Health and Maternal Health Equity

Deadline: July 17, 2022
Go to grant website

The Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announces this new funding opportunity to advance the goals of the NIH Implementing a Maternal health and PRegnancy Outcomes Vision for Everyone (IMPROVE) Initiative. IMPROVE aims to understand the biological, behavioral, environmental, sociocultural, and structural factors that affect pregnancy-related and pregnancy-associated morbidity and mortality and build an evidence base for improved care and outcomes. The initiative promotes research to address health disparities associated with pregnancy-related and pregnancy-associated morbidity and mortality.

The purpose of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to stimulate dissemination and implementation research on innovative approaches built on evidence-based findings from foundational research on factors that contribute to maternal morbidity and mortality (MMM). This NOSI will support the development and implementation of strategies to inform integrated efforts involving policy and practice changes to improve preconception, pregnancy, perinatal, and postpartum care and advance maternal health and maternal health equity.

DOD-CDMRP Peer Reviewed Alzheimer's Research Program (PRARP)

Deadline: July 23, 2022

In addition, the PRARP strongly advocates for study population diversity, including but not limited to ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, and health access factors. In addition to a focus on individual and care support, the PRARP seeks to support research focusing on the intersection of TBI-AD/ADRD, including understanding mechanisms, biomarkers, and risk factors associated with Veteran populations. The PRARP is interested in supporting research leading to treatment modalities that have near-term benefit. Mechanisms include: Accelerating Diagnostics Research Award; Investigator-Initiated Research Award; and Translational Research Award.  

Bioprinted Tissue Constructs for Obstetric, Gynecologic, and Pediatric Applications (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Deadline: July 28, 2022
Go to grant website

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications that will utilize 3D bioprinting technologies to develop tissue constructs for long-term use that will adapt to the needs of growing children, and for obstetric and gynecological conditions. The overall goal of this initiative is to promote the clinical translation of bioprinted tissue constructs by helping to identify and working to overcome current barriers to preclinical product development, validation and verification. This will ultimately enable evidence generation for regulatory approval and human testing of mature bioprinted tissue constructs addressing the unmet needs of NICHD mission-relevant gynecologic, obstetric and pediatric diseases and disorders. Of note, this FOA is not intended for early stage, hypothesis validation of new bioprinted tissue constructs not yet mature for pursuing clinical translation or to support large scale clinical trials using bioprinted tissue constructs.

Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Cancer Prevention, Detection, Diagnosis, and Treatment Technologies for Global Health (U01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Deadline: July 30, 2022
Go to grant website

The purpose of this announcement is to alert the community that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) plans to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to invite applications for Cancer Prevention, Detection, Diagnosis, and Treatment Technologies for Global Health (U01 activity code). This FOA supports the development of cancer-relevant technologies suitable for use in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Specifically, the FOA solicits applications for projects to adapt, apply, and validate existing or emerging technologies into a new generation of user-friendly, low-cost technologies for preventing, detecting, diagnosing, and/or treating cancers in people living in LMICs.

This Notice encourages investigators with expertise and insight into the areas of global oncology and global health technology research and development to begin developing responsive applications.

This funding opportunity is part of a broader NCI-sponsored Affordable Cancer Technologies (ACTs) Program.

The intended FOA will utilize the U01 Cooperative Agreement mechanism (Clinical Trial Optional).
