The ultimate goal of this program announcement is to build a body of science in symptom cluster identification and intervention in cancer and in immune disorders (acquired or autoimmune).
This announcement invites applications to (a) identify and assess biobehavioral characteristics of symptom clusters; or (b) design and test interventions that lead to clear outcomes. A rationale for the choice of a symptom cluster is needed, not just co-occurrence of two or more symptoms. Studies at any point in the disease trajectory, or during the survivorship period are encouraged.
The total amount to be awarded depends on the scientific merit of applications and the funds available at the participating NIH Institutes/Centers.
The anticipated number of awards is contingent on their scientific merit and the funds available in the general funding pool of the participating NIH Institutes/Centers.
The type of mechanism is the Research (R01) Award or the Exploratory/Developmental Research (R21) Award.
Eligible organizations include for-profit and not-for-profit, public or private organizations, units of state and local governments, eligible agencies of the Federal Government, domestic or foreign institutions/organizations, faith-based or community-based organizations, and Native American tribal organizations.
Eligible principal investigators are any individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research.
The number of applications each applicant may submit is unrestricted.
