Brief Description

Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) invite applications to support innovative scientific research in new prospective cohorts that addresses knowledge gaps in cancer etiology and carcinogenesis processes with a focus on environmental exposures.

Applicants are encouraged to use validated and reproducible innovative techniques to measure environmental exposures relevant to the proposed scientific research questions. The cohorts should include racial/ethnic minorities and understudied populations to address the unequal burden of cancer that currently exists in those populations. In this FOA, environmental exposures refer to physical, chemical, and biological factors external to a person, and related behavioral factors.

This FOA is published in parallel with RFA-CA-20-050 “New Cohorts for Environmental Exposures and Cancer Risk (CEECR) Coordinating Center (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)”. New prospective cohorts and the Coordinating Center funded under these FOAs together will constitute the Cohorts for Environmental Exposure and Cancer Risk (CEECR) program.
