Network Perspectives

What impact do you hope the PE-CGS Network will help make?

The overall purpose of the PE-CGS Network is twofold: (1) To promote and support direct engagement of diverse groups of underrepresented cancer patients and survivors as active participants in cancer research; and (2) To address gaps in our knowledge of genomics in rare or highly lethal cancers, cancers with high disparities, and cancers in understudied populations.

Funding & Opportunities

Administrative Supplements to Support Cancer Disparity Collaborative Research

These administrative supplements aim to promote new cancer disparities research among investigators who do not normally conduct it and to encourage the partnership of experienced cancer research investigators with cancer disparities-focused researchers. They are intended to accelerate and strengthen multi-disciplinary cancer disparities research in wide ranging areas. An upcoming deadline is January 23, 2024. Learn about the administrative supplement here

Administrative Supplements to Recognize Excellence in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) Mentorship

This reissued Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) aims to provide administrative supplement support to scientists with existing NIH awards who have demonstrated compelling commitments and contributions to mentorship and enhancing DEIA in the biomedical sciences, including basic science, behavioral and social sciences, and clinical research. This NOSI supports the future personal research and/or mentoring activities of mentors who have dedicated their time and effort and made significant contributions, based on evaluation data and publications, to DEIA. Deadline to apply is February 16, 2024. Learn about the administrative supplement here

Administrative Supplement for Research & Capacity Building Efforts Related to Bioethical Issues

NIH, through the Office of Science Policy, is announcing the availability of administrative supplements to support research on bioethical issues that either inform future policy directions or augment bioethics research capacity. Areas of interest include: digital health and/or real-world data; patient and community engagement; return of results for individuals, families, communities, and/or society; and data sharing. Applications will be accepted until 5:00 pm (local time) on April 1. Learn more about the administrative supplement here

Multi-Sectoral Preventive Interventions Research Network to Address Social Determinants of Health in Populations that Experience Health Disparities

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) and participating Institutes, Centers, and Offices are seeking applications for a new collaborative research network to test multi-sectoral preventive interventions for health conditions in populations that experience health disparities. Applications are due August 5, 2024.
