National Institutes of Health (NIH): Neural Regulation of Cancer (R21)

This opportunity uses the R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grants funding mechanism.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages collaborative, transdisciplinary research with both neuroscience and cancer elements, which together will advance current understanding of the nervous system contribution to cancer.

Leveraging the knowledge, tools, experimental models and reagents in neuroscience research to uncover novel mechanisms used by the nervous system to promote tumor initiation, progression, and metastasis can ultimately inform key areas of cancer research, including the prevention and treatment of non-central nervous system tumours.
