Title: Early Phase Clinical Trials in Imaging and Image-Guided Interventions (R21) (PAR-140013)

Sponsor: National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)

Deadline: 5/30/2014

Amount: $275,000/2 yrs.

Description: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is intended to support clinical trials conducting preliminary evaluation of the safety and efficacy of imaging agents, as well as an assessment of imaging systems, image processing, image-guided therapy, contrast kinetic modeling, 3-D reconstruction and other quantitative tools. As many such preliminary evaluations are early in development, this FOA will provide investigators with support for pilot (Phase I and II) cancer imaging clinical trials, including patient monitoring and laboratory studies. This FOA supports novel uses of known/standard clinical imaging agents and methods as well as the evaluation of new agents, systems, or methods. The imaging and image-guided intervention (IGI) investigations, if proven successful in these early clinical trials, can then be validated in larger studies through competitive R01 mechanisms, or through clinical trials in the Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs), Cancer Centers and/or the NCI's National Clinical Trials Network. The R21 grant mechanism is intended to encourage exploratory/developmental research by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of project development. 

How to Apply: Submit letter of intent directly to sponsor by May 30. Contact your departmental Grants and Contracts Specialist or Kathy Thatcher (thatcher@austin.utexas.edu) in Liberal Arts Grants Services and return Proposal Review Form by June 9.
