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:
- testing new theories and conceptual frameworks;
- developing and evaluating novel strategies to improve cancer-related health behaviors;
- investigating multi-level and multi-behavioral approaches; and
- 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.
