The NCI is announcing a limited competition for a competing application from 
the current awardee institution of the Cancer Research Network Across Health 
Care Systems (CRN), which was funded through RFA-CA-97-017 
(  This will 
continue a unique ongoing project at its current scope. The CRN has developed 
a valuable research resource that facilitates access to health services 
research data, research methods and instrumentation, and collaborative 
research communications across a network of healthcare provider organizations 
that represents a national population laboratory for conducting health 
services and epidemiological research across the cancer control continuum. The 
NCI wants to maintain the CRN with its present structure since any 
organizational change would require a rebuilding of infrastructure and 
reduction and interruption in the capacity of this research network to support 
and conduct health services and epidemiological research studies of high 
priority to NCI. Interruption of this project would also compromise the 
resources available to the conduct collaborative studies with NCI staff and 
intramural researchers, and with other members of the research community.

NCI staff will contact the current grantees directly regarding application 
procedures and format.
