The National Cancer Institute (NCI) announces a new initiative:  Rapid Access
to Intervention Development (RAID).  RAID will make available to academic
investigators the preclinical development contract resources of NCIĆ¾s
Developmental Therapeutics Program. The goal of RAID is the rapid movement of
novel molecules and concepts from the laboratory to the clinic for proof-of-
principle clinical trials.  RAID will assist investigators who submit
successful requests by providing any (or all) of the pre-clinical
developmental requirements for clinical translation.  These include, for
example, production, bulk supply, GMP manufacturing, formulation, and
toxicology.  Suitable types of agents for RAID include small molecules,
biologics, or vaccines.  For more detailed information, visit the web site,

Requests for RAID resources are to be submitted as described in the web site. 
Written requests will be evaluated by a specially constituted RAID panel,
consisting of selected NCI staff and outside experts from academia and
industry.  The first group of requests will be received by August 1, 1998.
Thereafter, there will be two receipt dates per year, February 1 and August 1,
with all materials submitted directly to the office listed under INQUIRIES.


Inquiries are encouraged, and the opportunity to clarify issues or questions
is welcome.  Inquiries may be directed to:
