The following additional information is provided for RFA CA-97-006,
"Cancer Drug Discovery: Diversity Generation and Smart Assays," which
appeared in the NIH Guide, Vol. 26, No. 15, May 9, 1997:
The Letter of Intent Receipt Date has been changed to July 11, 1997.
The Application Receipt Date remains at August 22, 1997.
The following section on FUNDS AVAILABLE has been changed to clarify
the budget limitations on applications.
The NCI has set aside $3.75 million total costs (direct plus
facilities and administrative costs) for the first year of funding.
The number of awards and level of support is dependent on the receipt
of a sufficient number and diversity of applications with high
scientific merit.  It is expected that most awards will not exceed
$950,000 total costs (direct plus facilities and administrative
costs) for year one with no more than a 3% per year increase for
future years.  Exceptionally meritorious applications may be funded
at a higher level provided the budget is adequately justified and
considered reasonable by peer review.  In all cases, budget requests
should be carefully justified and commensurate with the needs of the
project.  Because the nature and scope of the research proposed in
response to the RFA may vary, it is anticipated that the size of the
awards may vary.  It is anticipated that four to five awards will be
made for periods up to five years, with the earliest expected award
date being April 1, 1998.
Although this program is provided for in the financial plans of the
NCI, awards pursuant to this RFA are contingent upon the availability
of funds for this purpose.
