National Cancer Institute

To support and encourage scientific collaboration among National Cancer 
Institute (NCI) grantees as well as with other members of the scientific 
community, the Division of Cancer Biology (DCB) of the NCI announces the 
availability of two administrative mechanisms to facilitate such interactions 
under a program entitled Activities to Promote Research Collaborations (APRC). 
 A full description of this program can be accessed at the following website:  It details the 
opportunities available to DCB grantees for collaborative activities through 
administrative supplements to their active grants and the mechanisms for 
requesting such supplements.

Collaborative activities that can be supported are those that bring together 
ideas and approaches from disparate scientific disciplines, including those 
not currently supported by DCB.  Examples of collaborative activities include, 
but are not limited to, initiating novel research projects, sharing resources 
and reagents, developing novel technologies, and organizing cross-disciplinary 
meetings/workshops.  It is essential, however, that proposed APRC activities 
be within the overall scope of the parent award.

Requests for APRC supplemental support will be accepted 2 times each year; 
December 15th and April 15th.  Requests must be submitted as described on the 
web site.


Investigators funded by DCB who are interested in the activities described 
here are encouraged to contact their DCB program director.  Other interested 
investigators may direct their inquiries to:
