This opportunity uses the R01 Research Project Grant funding mechanism.
The purpose of this announcement is to reduce the burden of cancer and improve the quality of cancer care in rural areas among low-income and/or underserved populations.
The award encourages two types of applications:
- Observational research that includes pilot testing of intervention to understand and address predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations. Specifically, the focus for observational studies (with pilot testing) is understanding and addressing the predictive and/or mediating role of social determinants of health, barriers to care, and treatment.
- Intervention research to address known predictors of cancer care/treatment and outcomes in rural low-income and/or underserved populations; the focus for interventional research is on addressing quality of care related to cancer diagnosis, treatment and/or survivorship. Most existing cancer control interventions are not ready for direct implementation and dissemination in low-income rural areas, so proposals should seek to develop, adapt, and/or implement, and test interventions.
Funding & Duration
Budgets for applications that propose an observational study that includes pilot testing are limited to US $400,000 (approx. AUD $532,000) direct costs per year.
The maximum project period is 5 years.
Non-domestic (non-U.S.) Entities (Foreign Institutions) are eligible to apply.
