National Cancer Institute

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is issuing a "letter" Request for

Applications (RFA) to institutions that have been awarded Cancer

Center Support Grants (CCSGs or P30s) or Cancer Center Planning

Grants (P20s) to provide important equipment and instrumentation

needs in cancer research.  The awards are in the form of one-time

supplements with no outyear commitments.  Equipment requested should

be for items not generally considered to be "portable" and/or

generally not available through the traditional research grant

mechanisms (e.g., R01s, P01s).  These types of equipment normally

require dedicated space; serve as a resource for several

peer-reviewed, funded research projects; and are centrally managed by

the cancer center.  Requests can be for a single piece of equipment,

an upgrade to a piece of equipment or an existing facility, or

several pieces of equipment that are components of an integrated

setup.  Up to $2 million in total costs will be committed to fund

applications that are submitted in response to the "letter" RFA.

Institutions with P30s will be limited to one request and are

required to provide matching funds of 50 percent of the costs of the

equipment.  Institutions with P20s will be limited to two requests

and are encouraged to provide matching funds of 50 percent of the

costs of the equipment.  Requests broadly related to breast cancer,

prostate cancer, or other areas designated as areas of "high

priority" research would be especially welcome; however, applications

need not be limited to these cancers.


The receipt date for applications is March 1, 1994 and awards are

anticipated before September 30, 1994.  A copy of the complete

"letter" RFA may be requested from:
