The National Cancer Institutes Office of Cancer Complementary and
Alternative Medicine (OCCAM), the National Center for Complementary and
Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), the National Institute of Nursing Research
(NINR), and the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research
(NIDCR)invite research grant applications from interested investigators to
conduct innovative developmental pilot research investigating complementary
approaches in cancer. The intent of this initiative is to encourage and
support the development of basic and clinical complementary cancer research
and to provide the basis for more extended research projects by establishing
the methodological feasibility, strengthening the scientific rationale for
these projects, and collecting preliminary data. This announcement is also
intended to stimulate and facilitate the entry of promising investigators
into research in these topics through a program of exploratory investigator-
initiated R21 grants.

The exploratory/developmental (R21) grant mechanism is used for pilot
projects or feasibility studies to support the exploration of feasibility, as
well as the development, of projects investigating complementary approaches
in cancer and for the generation of preliminary data. The R21 mechanism is
specifically intended to support innovative ideas where preliminary data are
sparse or do not exist. The R21 supported projects are intended to serve as
a foundation for planning and developing future research projects (R01s).
The objective of this Program Announcement (PA) is to encourage applications
from individuals who are interested in testing novel or conceptually creative
ideas that may produce innovative advances in the understanding and use of
complementary approaches in cancer.
