This notice provides clarification on future NCI grant support to NCI’s Outstanding Investigator Award (OIA) (R35) recipients.  As indicated in the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), future applications submitted after the OIA is awarded will not be folded into the R35 award; however, the 6 calendar month level of effort on the OIA must be maintained for the entire 7-year project period. This Notice clarifies that NCI will only consider funding two additional research project grants to the Outstanding Investigator while the OIA is active.  This limit includes single PD/PI, multiple PD/PI and multi-project grants. In addition, any grant that was relinquished at the time the OIA was awarded should not be submitted for renewal and will not be considered for funding by NCI.
