This opportunity uses the R21 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grants funding mechanism.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research projects that focus on innovative research in the isolation and characterization of exosomes and their cargo for discovery of predictive biomarkers for risk assessment, detection, diagnosis and prognosis of early cancer.
This FOA will promote rigor and reproducibility research in both the isolation of exosomes as well as the computational analysis of the cargo carried in these vesicles.
