NCI Outstanding Investigator Award (R35)

The objective of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Outstanding Investigator Award (OIA) is to provide long-term support to experienced investigators with outstanding records of cancer research productivity who propose to conduct exceptional research. The OIA is intended to allow investigators the opportunity to take greater risks, be more adventurous in their lines of inquiry, or take the time to develop new techniques. The OIA would allow an Institution to submit an application nominating an established Program Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) for a 7-year grant.
Deadline:   9/1   Internal LOI due to Kate Shumate
