Notice Number: NOT-CA-05-023
Release Date: July 15, 2005
The National Cancer Institute gives notice of the extension of the expiration date for PAR-03-104, The Howard Temin Award (K01), until July 2, 2006.
Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html), and the special instructions found in PHS 398 Section III, Preparing an Individual Research Career Development Award (CDA) Application.
This notice also seeks to clarify two aspects of PAR-03-104 as follows:
Budget: The budget proposed must include any anticipated increases in salary (if below the $75,000 cap) for cost of living increases, promotions (especially at the transition to independence), etc. In addition, the increase in allowed research support from $30,000 during the mentored phase to $50,000 in the independent phase MUST be included in the proposed budget. No adjustments can be made after the award has been issued.
Research Area: The candidate's research proposal must include research on the etiology, pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, control, or treatment of HUMAN cancer. The proposed research may involve model systems, including animal models. However, at some point during the grant period, the proposed research must include work on human cancer; the term “human cancer” includes human cancer tissues and/or cell lines as well as including humans as research subjects.
Note these projected increases will be used for budget planning purposes only. Actual salary and research cost needs will be confirmed prior to award.
