National Cancer Institute (NCI)

The NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE is accepting proposals for the following 
initiative:  Rapid Access to Intervention Development (RAID).  RAID will make 
available to academic investigators, on a competitive basis, the preclinical 
development contract resources of NCI's Developmental Therapeutics Program.  
RAID is not a grant program.  The goal of RAID is the rapid movement of novel 
molecules and concepts from the laboratory to the clinic for proof-of-principle 
clinical trials, using NCI's contract research mechanisms.  RAID will assist 
investigators who submit successful proposals by providing any (or all) of the 
preclinical development steps that may be obstacles to clinical translation.  
These may include, for example, production, bulk supply, GMP manufacturing, 
formulation and toxicology.  Suitable agents for RAID will include small 
molecules, biologics or vaccines.  

There are two receipt dates for requests for RAID support per year, February 1 
and August 1.  Current requests must be received by August 1, 2003, with all 
materials submitted directly to the office listed below; do not submit 
materials to the Center for Scientific Review.   

For information on process and procedure of requests for RAID resources, visit 
the DTP web site http://dtp.nci.nih.gov/.  Inquiries are encouraged, the 
opportunity to clarify issues or questions is welcome.  Academic investigators 
may have collaborations with small-business partners and still qualify for RAID 
funding.  Non-profit organizations other than universities may also submit RAID 
applications.  Please note that a maximum of two distinct requests for support 
per investigator can be submitted for each receipt date.
