  NIH: NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) Minority/Underserved Community Sites (UM1)RFA-CA-13-014

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications from institutions/organizations to participate in NCI's Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) as NCORP Minority/Underserved Community Sites. The goal of NCORP is to build upon the scope and activities of NCI's previously supported community networks, the Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) which includes CCOP community sites (CCOPs), Minority-Based CCOP sites (MB-CCOPs), and CCOP Research Bases, and NCI's Community Cancer Centers' Program (NCCCP) by establishing a single community-based research program. NCORP will be an integrated national network to: 1) design and conduct cancer prevention, control and screening/post-treatment surveillance clinical trials; 2) design and conduct cancer care delivery research; 3) enhance patient and provider access to treatment and imaging clinical trials conducted under the reorganized National Clinical Trials Network (NCTN); and 4) integrate disparity research questions into clinical trials and cancer care delivery research.

NCORP consists of three components each with its own FOA, which are: NCORP Research Bases; NCORP Community Sites; and NCORP Minority/Underserved Community Sites (covered by this FOA).

The NCORP Minority/Underserved Community Sites will accrue patients/participants to NCI-approved cancer clinical trials and cancer care delivery research designed by NCORP Research Bases and NCTN Groups. The Minority/Underserved Community Sites provide access for practicing oncologists who serve large numbers of racial/ethnic minority and underserved patients to the NCI clinical trials network, as well as provide a unique opportunity to identify and address clinical trial and cancer care delivery research questions related to the more serious, prevalent cancers and cancer-related problems which persist in racial/ethnic minorities and other underserved populations.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by November 21, 2013. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NIH indicates that a letter of intent is due on December 8, 2013 and a full proposal is due by January 8, 2014 . For more information:
