The Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences of the National Cancer
Institute (NCI) invites the submission of behavioral research applications in
cancer control from investigators from a wide range of behavioral and social
science disciplines who wish to focus their research on the behavioral
aspects of the cancer control continuum from prevention to end of life care.
The Exploratory Grant Program is designed to encourage the growth of a
diverse cohort of scientists with a high level of research expertise in
behavioral cancer control research. This exploratory grant is a 2-year award
designed to encourage exploration of new ideas and new methodologies in the
target area and to provide support for the collection of pilot data to be
used as the basis for later R01s. NIH Grants policies apply to these awards.
The Behavioral Research Program (BRP) at NCI also issues an R03 program
announcement http://dccps.nci.nih.gov/smallgrants/.) The two mechanisms, the
R21 and the R03, are both considered small grants but are targeted to two
different audiences. The BRP R21 targets new ideas and feasibility studies in
areas new to seasoned investigators. The R03 is designed for new
investigators. The R21 provides enough funding for a (small) collaborative
team. The R03 guidelines until recently mandated a mentor relationship; this
is still encouraged. The R21 applications are reviewed in the large pool of
CSR study sections where the applications are evaluated by behavioral and/or
prevention scientists who may or may not have primary interests in oncology.
The R03 applications are reviewed by NCI. Hence, the PI must use different
strategies in presenting the research design and other sections of the
applicants. The R21 is often used as a vehicle to provide rich pilot data for
a later R01, and PI s are encouraged to think ahead to the next step, should
their R21 hypotheses test favorably; there is a lesser emphasis on the
continuation into the R01 for the R03 applicant. In summary, seasoned
investigators use the R21 mechanism to pursue new avenues of research with
new populations; new investigators use the R03 to learn the factors involved
in leading an investigation in an area they may have been working in since
graduate school or as a post-doc.
