Notice Number: NOT-CA-06-003

Key Dates
Release Date: December 2, 2005

Issued by
National Cancer Institute (NCI), (

The Division of Cancer Biology (DCB) of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites requests for supplemental funding in fiscal year 2006 for existing DCB-funded research projects (i.e., administrative supplements) to support and encourage new multidisciplinary scientific collaborations among DCB grantees, as well as with other members of the scientific community. This initiative, known as the Activities to Promote Research Collaborations (APRC), supports collaborative interdisciplinary activities that bring together ideas and approaches from disparate scientific disciplines including those not currently supported by DCB. Examples of collaborative activities include, but are not limited to, initiating new collaborative research projects, sharing unique resources and reagents, developing novel technologies, and organizing cross-disciplinary meetings/workshops. It is essential, however, that proposed APRC activities be within the overall scope of the active parent award and that the collaborative activity is new.

A full description of the APRC program and the fiscal year 2006 guidelines can be found at the following web site: It details the opportunities available to DCB grantees for collaborative activities funded with administrative supplements to their active grants and the mechanisms for requesting these supplements.

There is a single receipt date of February 15, 2006. Requests must be submitted as described in the APRC program guidelines.


Investigators funded by DCB who are interested in the activities described must contact their DCB Program Director prior to submitting an application. Other interested investigators may direct their inquiries to:
