The FNIH Biomarkers Consortium 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 HCDI WG invites investigative teams to submit brief project concept proposals for application of biomarker platforms to any of three clinical challenges given below. The working group is currently focused on identifying testable technical solutions with potential for commercialization that address these challenges. These proposals will be considered for funding under the BC precompetitive project model described in the Request for Proposals.
A pre-application webinar will provide information about the Biomarkers Consortium project development process and opportunity for Q&A. Details can be found here: https://fnih.org/csc-hcdi-rfp
