Small-Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) Consortium: Innovative Approaches to the Prevention and Early Detection of Small Cell Lung Cancer

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to establish research teams of the Small-Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) Consortium to conduct research whose overall goals are: 1) to expand the understanding of the critical molecular changes in the lung that precede the development of frank SCLC and/or, 2) to identify populations at particularly high risk for SCLC.

This FOA focuses on one of the five research priorities identified in the National Cancer Institute's 2014 Scientific Framework for Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC).

The research supported by this FOA will be performed by individual research teams who are expected to collaborate with one another and with a central SCLC Coordinating Center. A third component of the SCLC Consortium focuses on therapeutic approaches and mechanisms of resistance in SCLC.
