Purpose

NCI's Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) will hold two pre-application webinars for the Participant Engagement and Cancer Genome Sequencing (PE-CGS) Network Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs), which are RFA-CA-19-045 "Participant Engagement and Cancer Genome Sequencing (PE-CGS): Research Centers (U2C Clinical Trial Optional)" and RFA-CA-19-046 "Participant Engagement and Cancer Genome Sequencing (PE-CGS): Coordinating Center (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)".

These FOAs are associated with the Beau Biden Cancer MoonshotSMInitiative that is intended to accelerate cancer research. Specifically, both these FOAs fall under a scientific priority designated by the Blue Ribbon Panel (BRP) as Recommendation A "Establish a Network for Direct Patient Engagement".

The first webinar (August 7, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET) will focus on introducing both funding opportunities and the second webinar (September 25, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET) will focus on frequently asked questions for both funding opportunities.

NCI staff involved in these FOAs will provide orientation to the above-referenced FOAs and technical assistance to potential applicants by explaining the goals and objectives and answering questions from webinar attendees. Potential applicants are encouraged to submit their questions in advance to NCI_PE-CGS@mail.nih.gov.

Note: Questions about the scope of the FOAs will be addressed during the webinar; however, questions about investigators' specific study aims will not be addressed in the webinar.

To join the webinar, pre-registration is required through Webex.

Specific webinar information will be provided upon registration.

Following these webinars, NCI DCCPS will post a recording for each webinar on this website - https://epi.grants.cancer.gov/events/pe-cgs/.

Participation in this webinar, although encouraged, is optional, and is not required for the submission of an application in response to RFA-CA-19-045 or RFA-CA-19-046.
