Description:

The National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institute of Environmental
Health Sciences (NIEHS), the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and
Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders
and Stroke (NINDS) invite applications for the development and delivery of novel
in vivo image acquisition or enhancement technologies and methods for biomedical
imaging and image-guided interventions and therapy. Applications may incorporate
limited pilot or clinical feasibility evaluations using either pre-clinical
models or clinical studies. This initiative is primarily intended to facilitate
the proof-of-feasibility, development, and delivery of novel imaging
technologies for early detection, screening, diagnosis, image-guided
interventions and treatments of various diseases, and, secondarily, to
facilitate limited evaluation studies to show proof-of-concept and
functionality.
The interests of NCI focus on imaging in vivo for cancer pre-conditions, cancer
screening, diagnosis, progression, treatment monitoring, recurrence, and image-
based surrogate end points. NCIs interests include development and delivery of
imaging technologies that are cancer specific, and optimization and validation
of imaging technologies for cancer applications. The scope includes system
integration, contrast agents, pre- and post-processing algorithms and software
for imaging, image understanding, and related informatics that are cancer
specific. The interests of NIEHS focus on detection of intracellular events
including gene expression and signal transduction pathway alterations, screening
or diagnosis of tissue and organ toxicities related to exposures to
environmental agents. These areas of interest include initiation of toxicity or
exacerbation of disease or dysfunction resulting from toxic exposure, treatment,
and recovery. The interests of NIDDK focus on diabetes, digestive, and kidney
diseases. The interests of NINDS focus on development and delivery of
neuroimaging technologies that can be applied to diagnosis and treatment of
neurological disorders.
This PA is directed toward the development, optimization, and delivery of
innovative image acquisition and enhancement methods, including high risk/high
gain research on technologies such as: (a) novel single and multi-modality
molecular imaging systems, methods, agents, and related software and
informatics, including the integration of these technologies with emerging
biomedical imaging methods for more effective health care delivery for cancer
and other diseases and (b) novel single and multimodality anatomical and
functional imaging systems, methods, agents, and related software and
informatics for more effective health care delivery for cancer and other
diseases. In addition, research partnerships among investigators in both
academia and device and drug industries are encouraged to more rapidly translate
and deliver completed imaging system developments.
This PA will utilize the Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business
Technology Transfer Mechanisms but will be run in parallel with a NCI program
announcement of nearly identical scope PA-04-095
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-04-095) that utilizes the Phased
Innovation Award (R21/33) and the R33 mechanisms for exploratory/developmental
studies and which is open to a broad range of organizations.
Fast Track applications are encouraged in this solicitation because they benefit
from expedited evaluation of progress following Phase I exploratory/feasibility
work for immediate decision on transition to Phase II funding for expanded
developmental work.
