Funding Announcement for the Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) (U01) RFA-CA-14-012 is a continuation of Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) program.  This FOA invites applications for collaborative research projects using simulation and other modeling techniques for specific cancer sites. The proposed research is expected to generate sophisticated, evidence-based decision tools that could inform international/national/regional/local decisions on the most efficient utilization of existing and emerging technologies and strategies for the control of cancer.

This FOA is open to all qualified applicants. The FOA is limited to one of six cancer sites: Prostate, Colon/Rectum, Breast, Esophagus, Lung, and Cervix (Cervical Cancer is added for this CISNET re-issuance).

The scientific/research contact for this FOA is:

Notice of Correction to RFA-CA-14-012 "Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) (U01)"

This Notice is to correct RFA-CA-14-012 "Cancer Intervention and Surveillance Modeling Network (CISNET) (U01)" with regard to the instructions for applicants in the following two spots of Section IV.2. Content and Form of Application Submission.

Correction 1) Lines 11-12 under the heading R&R or Modular Budget, which now read:

The budget allocation for the Coordinating Center should generally not exceed $90K in direct costs per year (including all costs for the required Patient and Stakeholder Advisory Group, see Research Strategy below).

The text in parenthesis is deleted. This sentence should read:

The budget allocation for the Coordinating Center should generally not exceed $90K in direct costs per year.

Correction 2) Under Research Strategy, subheading "Sub-section A", 2nd paragraph, 2nd sentence reading:
A separate subsection highlighting patient-centered modeling work to be conducted should be included.

This sentence is deleted.

All other aspects of RFA-CA-14-012 remain unchanged.
