The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) Biomarkers Consortium (BC) is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for novel biomarker platforms to support the mission of the BC Cancer Steering Committee (CSC) High Content Data Integration Working Group (HCDI WG). The mission of the HCDI WG is to develop and support pilot projects that use emerging technology platforms with the potential to overcome limitations of established methodologies in the application of multi-dimensional biomarkers. The working group is focused on technologies that have the potential to address recognized clinical challenges, such as for development of tailored signatures for patient stratification, alternatives to solid biopsies, and advanced imaging technologies. The working group provides project teams with development and implementation guidance to generate fundable projects that fit the intended use of a technology and potentially enable rational clinical decisions.
The HCDI WG invites investigators to submit brief project concept proposals for application of novel biomarker platforms to either of two clinical challenges. These proposals will be considered for funding under the BC precompetitive project model. The working group is currently focused on identifying precompetitive, testable technical solutions with potential for commercialization that address the characterization of tumor heterogeneity:
