This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) represents the continuation of an NCI program to make possible the diversification of the cancer research workforce via facilitation of the transition of investigators from minority groups underrepresented in biomedical research, primarily those with clinical doctoral degrees as well as those with doctoral degrees working in the areas of cancer prevention, control, behavioral, or population science research, from the mentored stage of career development in academic cancer research to the independent stage. This goal is achieved by providing protected time through salary and research support for 3 years to: postdoctoral individuals or junior faculty in mentored positions transitioning into their first independent position; and investigators within the first 2 years of their first independent cancer research position, to initiate and develop their independently-supported cancer research programs. The award will provide 3 years of salary (up to $75,000 per annum plus fringe benefits) and research support up to $50,000 per annum.
