The National Cancer Institute (NCI) administers two unique programs focused on supporting technology development research that offer transformative potential for advancing cancer research. The Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies (IMAT) program supports highly innovative, data-generating platforms and methodologies while the Informatics Technologies for Cancer Research (ITCR) program supports powerful data processing and visualization technologies.
To accelerate the development of new enabling cancer technologies, the NCI invites requests for supplemental funding in fiscal years 2017 and 2018 to support and encourage new multidisciplinary scientific collaborations among awardees from these two programs. The goal of the Activities to Promote Technology Research Collaborations (APTRC) is to support new collaborations that bring together complementary technology platforms and methodologies to enhance the capabilities of either in a way that advances cancer research or clinical care. The proposed APTRC activities must be within the overall scope of active parent grants.
