Trec Coordination Center: The Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS), National Cancer Institute (NCI), invites applications for cooperative agreements (U01 mechanism) to support the establishment of a Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics* and Cancer (TREC) Coordination Center. This Coordination Center will support the TREC Centers, which focus upon the research areas of nutrition, energetics*, energy balance, and physical activity. The primary mission of the Coordination Center is to foster collaborations among transdisciplinary teams of scientists, to facilitate data analyses, to examine common research questions across sites, to coordinate and facilitate semi-annual meetings of the TREC Centers, to develop training modules, and to evaluate progress, with the goal of accelerating progress toward reducing cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality associated with obesity, low levels of physical activity, and poor diet. This RFA is occurring in tandem with RFA CA-05-010 entitled, Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC) Centers, which utilize the U54 cooperative agreement funding mechanism to establish up to five TREC Centers. *Energetics -- The study of the flow and transformation of energy through living systems The American Heritage Dictionary, 2000. The TREC Centers will encompass projects that range from the biology and genetics of energy balance to the behavioral, socio-cultural, and environmental influences on nutrition, physical activity, weight, energy balance, and energetics. The mission of the TREC Centers will focus on two great challenges in the area of energetics/energy balance and cancer: 1) Enhancing our understanding of the mechanisms underlying the association between energy balance and carcinogenesis across the cancer continuum from causation and prevention though survival, and 2) Developing effective innovative approaches with broad population impact at the social-environmental and policy levels for prevention of obesity, focusing on children and critical time periods during adulthood where weight gain is likely to occur, such as with smoking cessation, cancer treatment, and major life transitions involving work or family. (Refer to Figure 1: TREC Conceptual Model at http://cancercontrol.cancer.gov/TREC/.) Because of the central requirement for interactions across TREC Centers, a TREC Coordinating Center will be established under a cooperative agreement mechanism (U01) to facilitate the required interactions. This facilitation will include: (1) working with NCI program staff and Principal Investigators (PIs) to organize the biannual meetings of the TREC Centers; (2) identifying commonalities in research questions being explored across sites; (3) compiling state-of-the-art instruments for diet, weight, and physical activity assessments in use across sites; (4) identifying of common data elements in research across sites that could be compared or combined to examine more detailed questions in specific populations; (5) bringing together special working groups on key scientific topics; (6) providing state of the art cross-site communication and a project web site; (7)and/or developing training modules in diverse disciplines, such as genetics and proteomics; or developing advances in self report and technologies for assessment of diet and physical activity to support transfer of knowledge across disciplines. TREC Centers are encouraged to form partnerships with industry, public health agencies, and other organizations that have strong ties to minority communities with high rates of obesity and cancer.
