Brief Description

Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) will support a Coordinating Center to facilitate coordination across the new Cohorts for Environmental Exposures and Cancer Risk (CEECR) (see UG3/UH3 phased awards supported under companion RFA-CA-20-049). The overarching goal of the CEECR is to support innovative scientific research in new prospective cohorts to address knowledge gaps between environmental exposures and cancer etiology, and the genetic, lifestyle and behavioral factors that modify risk across diverse populations. The Coordinating Center will have several responsibilities, including, but not limited to provide administrative support to the CEECR program, create standard operating procedures and best practices to collect core common data elements and biological samples, facilitate communication across cohorts, provide meeting support, create and maintain the CEECR websites, and facilitate deposition of data to NIH repositories.
