National Cancer Institute (NCI)

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is announcing a limited competition for a 
competing renewal application for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium.  This 
initiative is intended to continue the support of multi-institutional, early 
phase pediatric brain tumor clinical trials in order to identify new 
therapeutic approaches that can subsequently be studied in later phase 
national pediatric clinical trials.  The NCI wants to continue this effort 
and is seeking an application from the PBTC Operations and Biostatistics 
Center to continue the work of the PBTC and its investigators in creating and 
evaluating new approaches to the treatment of pediatric brain tumors.  The 
PBTC cooperative agreement will consist of a single U01 award to the 
Coordinating Center, which will develop consortium agreements with existing 
full and provisional members of the Consortium. Scientific approaches taken 
by the Consortium will continue to be broad and will reflect the creativity 
and capabilities of team participants.    

NCI staff will contact the current grantee directly regarding application 
procedures and format.  The application receipt date is July 25,2003.
