National Cancer Institute (NCI)

The Division of Cancer Biology (DCB) of the National Cancer Institute 
announces an eligibility change in the Activities to Promote Research 
Collaboration (APRC) supplement program previously published as NOT-CA-
02-028.  NCI-funded Phase II SBIR and Phase II STTR grantees are now 
eligible to apply for funding under the APRC program.  SBIR/STTR 
grantees may participate as either the leader of a consortium, if 
funded by NCI through DCB, or as a participant in a consortium headed 
by another DCB grantee.  As stated in the Eligibility Requirements 
section of the APRC Guidelines, participants in a consortium, except 
for the lead institution, need not be funded by DCB.  All eligibility 
requirements and budget and administrative limits will apply to any 
consortia that include NCI-funded SBIR/STTR grantees.  Proposals for 
workshops would not be appropriate from SBIR/STTR grantees.  SBIR/STTR 
grantees will be expected to comply with the limitations on
