Quick-Trials for Novel Cancer Therapies: Exploratory Grants: Continuing progress in basic cancer research and drug development has led to discoveries of new agents or approaches for molecular targeting in novel cancer therapies. These new agents or approaches suppress tumor growth through multiple mechanisms such as cell cycle control, activation of tumor suppressor genes, essential signal pathway blockage, tumor vaccines, tumor microenvironment modification, etc. Rapid translation of these exciting discoveries into clinical practice requires timely support to accommodate the special needs of novel cancer therapy development. This Program Announcement (PA) is intended to provide investigators with rapid access to support for pilot, Phase I, and Phase II cancer clinical trials as well as support for patient monitoring and laboratory studies linked to a cancer clinical trial. Phase III trials are not excluded but such trials generally require greater resources and duration than available from an R21 award. Applications that do not propose a cancer clinical trial or patient monitoring or laboratory studies linked to a cancer clinical trial may be returned to applicants without being reviewed. The focus of this QUICK-TRIAL PA is on translational research in new agent development to ensure the timely exploitation of new cancer therapeutic approaches including the development of new cancer prevention agents. This PA is aimed at providing a new approach in the grant application process by offering a rapid turnaround from application submission to funding. Features of this initiative include a modular grant application and award process, inclusion of the clinical protocol within the grant application, and an accelerated peer review with the goal of issuing new awards within six months of application receipt. Inclusion of the complete clinical protocol within the PHS 398 grant application is intended to simplify the application process by eliminating the need to duplicate protocol details in the Research Plan section and to insure proper peer review of the application. In addition, QUICK-TRIAL applications do not require extensive preliminary data in the grant application and support exploratory translational and clinical research studies involving cancer prevention, chemotherapy and rapid development and application of novel clinical cancer therapies including image guided therapeutic procedures. Investigators may apply for a maximum of two years of funding support using the exploratory or developmental (R21) grant mechanism for up to $250,000 direct costs per year.
