Please indicate in your NOI which RFA you are pursuing and which of the three scientific areas your proposal fits (Data Science, Cancer Control Science, Other Sciences).

RFA-CA-20-014 is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary clinical trial. Applicants to this FOA are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor. Applicants proposing a clinical trial or an ancillary clinical trial as lead investigator, should apply to the companion FOA (RFA-CA-20-015).

RFA-CA-20-015 is designed specifically for applicants proposing to serve as the lead investigator of an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or a separate ancillary clinical trial, as part of their research and career development. Applicants not planning an independent clinical trial, or proposing to gain research experience in a clinical trial led by another investigator, must apply to companion FOA (RFA-CA-20-014).

If a full internal competition is necessary, pre-proposals should be submitted that include: 1) a three page project narrative briefly addressing the project need, the methodologies to be used, and the proposed plan of work; 2) 1-2 page budget overview with justifications; and 3) biosketches for key personnel.  In addition, we ask for a draft letter of nomination from your postdoctoral department or program head.
