National Institutes of Health (NIH): Stimulating Innovations in Behavioral Intervention Research for Cancer Prevention and Control (R21)

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

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to provide support for the development of innovative interventions that improve cancer-related health behaviours across diverse racial/ethnic populations.

Specifically, this FOA is intended to stimulate research aimed at:

  1. testing new theories and conceptual frameworks;
  2. developing and evaluating novel strategies to improve cancer-related health behaviors;
  3. investigating multi-level and multi-behavioral approaches; and
  4. utilising innovative research designs, methodologies, and technologies.

The cancer-related health behaviours to be targeted are diet, obesity, physical activity and sedentary behaviour, smoking, sleep and circadian dysfunction, alcohol use, and/or adherence to cancer-related medical regimens.

Research can involve any aspect of the cancer continuum and any phase of the translational spectrum.
