RELEASE DATE:  February 27, 2004


National Cancer Institute (NCI) 

This addendum is to inform potential applicants of a change in the 
expiration date of PAR-03-083 titled “Institutional Clinical Oncology 
Career Development (K12) Program." The change is as follows:

The previously announced expiration date of April 1, 2005 is being 
changed to April 1, 2004. The reason for this change is that PAR-03-083 
is being replaced by a revised PA titled “Paul Calabresi Award in 
Clinical Oncology” with a receipt date of June 1, 2004.  The new PA 
will be issued in the near future.  The NCI has named this award in 
honor of the late Dr. Paul Calabresi, who was a pioneer in the 
pharmacological treatment of cancer and early translational research.  
The overall career development objectives of PAR-03-083 remain 
unchanged.  However, the scope of PAR-03-083 is extended by 
additionally supporting programs involving clinicians AND basic 
scientists. The PAR also extends the allowable costs to include up to 
10 percent of the Principal Investigator/Program Leader’s salary plus 
fringe benefits, some partial salary plus fringe benefits for a 
dedicated administrator, up to $5,000 total per annum for each mentor, 
and minimal costs for advertising and recruitment.  These were costs 
were not allowable under PAR-03-083.  Finally, allowable direct costs 
have been increased to $800,000 annually for programs that train only 
clinicians.  Allowable direct costs for programs training clinicians 
and basic scientists are up to $1,100,000 annually.
