In order to be able to meet NIH cost containment objectives (NIH

Guide, Vol. 20, No. 28, July 19, 1991), the National Cancer Institute

is currently  reviewing options for revision of the guidelines and

purposes of its Outstanding Investigator Grant (OIG) (R35) program.

To reduce additional commitments during this period of evaluation,

new type 1 applications will not be accepted for the previously

announced June 1, 1992, receipt deadline.  In the interim, NCI will

rely on careful consideration of highly meritorious competing R01

applications for funding as MERIT awards to provide longer term

support for individual projects of exceptional potential.


To avoid disruption of ongoing OIG awards, competing continuation

applications (type 2) for OIG grants that currently are in the fifth

(05) year or later will continue to be accepted and may be submitted

by June 1, 1992.


Future receipt dates and a notice of availability of revised OIG

guidelines will be published subsequently in the NIH Guide.
