Examples of relevant disciplines for this Program Announcement (PA) include any aspect of human cancer prevention (modifiable risk factors, new animal models and extrapolation of these models to human cancer, genetic predisposition to cancer and detection of precursor lesions, patient-oriented research focused on cancer prevention, and behavioral research and behavioral intervention trials in cancer prevention), epidemiology (biochemical, genetic, molecular), biostatistics, human cancer genetics, clinical oncology, human nutrition, behavioral and social sciences, health promotion, health services and health policy research; and medical decision analysis, survivorship and quality of life as they relate to cancer.For the purpose of this PA, cancer control research is defined as

Additional Information on Eligibility
To be eligible for an NCI K07 award, candidates must have a Ph.D. degree, a health professional doctoral (M.D., Dr.PH., D.D.S., D.O., D.V.M., Pharm. D.) degree, or equivalent, or be a doctorally prepared oncology nurse; and must have a research or academic appointment in the sponsoring institution at the time of award. You must also be able to devote a minimum of 75 percent of full-time professional effort to the K07 Award. The remaining 25 percent effort can be divided among other research, clinical and teaching activities only if these activities are consistent with the goals of the K07 Award, i.e., the candidate's development into an independent investigator in cancer prevention, control, and the behavioral or population sciences. Only U.S. citizens or non-citizen nationals, or an individual lawfully admitted for permanent residence who possesses an Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-151 or I-551), or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident, are eligible for this award. Non- citizen nationals, although not U.S. citizens, owe permanent allegiance to the U.S. They are usually born in lands that are not states, but are under U.S. sovereignty, jurisdiction, or administration. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs. A candidate for an NCI K07 Award may not simultaneously submit or have pending an application for any other PHS career award (e.g., K01, K08, K23), an NCI Transition Career Award (K22), a research project grant (R01, R03), or any PHS or non-Federal award that duplicates any of the provisions of the K07 award. However, K07 awardees may submit an application for an NCI Transition Career Development Award (K22), and are encouraged to actively seek independent support of their research programs through investigator-initiated grants during the term of this award. Former or current principal investigators on any NIH research grants (this does not include NIH R03 or R21 grants or their equivalents) or non-PHS peer reviewed research grants that are over $100,000 direct costs per year, or project leaders on sub-projects of program project (P01) or center grants (P50) are NOT eligible to apply.
