Pilot Studies in Pancreatic Cancer (R03): This funding opportunity is intended to promote innovative research across multiple disciplines for better understanding of the biology, etiology, detection, prevention, and treatment of pancreatic cancer. Examples of appropriate research areas include, but are not limited to: Identification of genetic aberrations (e.g., mutations, epigenetic changes, etc.) or combinations of aberrations alterations that initiate or promote pancreatic cancer; development of experimental models for human pancreatic cancer to facilitate the understanding of molecular carcinogenesis, to help to identify promising molecular targets, and to test new preventive/therapeutic strategies; exploration of molecular pathways using human cell lines and/or tissues to identify possible novel targets for prevention or therapeutic development; Identification of markers for early detection of cancer; conduct of preclinical studies to identify candidate chemopreventive drug(s) and dietary factors for prevention and to characterize the molecular mechanism(s) of the agent's activity; conduct of small exploratory clinical trials with a potential chemopreventive agent (e.g., a farnesyltransferase inhibitor or a statin) assessing response via endoscopic ultrasound or another similar technology; development of early-stage clinical trials in pancreatic cancer prevention and therapy; assessment of any associations of tumor pathophysiology on tumor development, progression, and preventive/therapeutic response; Conduct of exploratory studies to identify and evaluate biomarkers (with associated assay development) to determine prognosis and predict response to therapy in pancreatic cancer; evaluation of combination therapies for pancreatic cancer; Identification of new' environmental exposures (e.g., adverse energy balance) that may contribute to pancreatic cancer development, including adverse energy balance; assessment of the impact of pancreatic cancer on health-related quality of life of patients and their caregivers; and conduct of pilot surveillance studies and generation of survivorship registries.-Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications; therefore, the anticipated number of awards is not known. -The R03 grant mechanism supports different types of projects including pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analysis of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. -The R03 is intended to support small research projects that can be carried out in a short period of time with limited resources. -Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the mechanism numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. -Budgets for direct costs of up to $50,000 per year and a project duration of up to 2 years may be requested for a maximum of $100,000 direct costs over a 2-year project period. -This FOA utilizes the NIH Small Grant (R03) mechanism and runs in parallel with an FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-06-303, which solicits applications under the NIH Exploratory/Developmental Grant (R21) award mechanism. -Eligible organizations include for-profit organizations; non-profit organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of State governments; units of State Tribal governments; units of local governments; units of local Tribal governments; eligible institutions of the Federal government; domestic institutions; foreign institutions; and faith-based or community-based organizations. -Eligible Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs) include any individuals from the applicant institutions who have the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. =Applicants may submit more than one application, provided each application is scientifically distinct.
