The NCI Childhood Cancer Data Initiative (CCDI) is a federal investment focused on the critical need to collect, analyze, and share data to address the burden of cancer in children, adolescents, and young adults. A key goal of CCDI is to develop and enhance tools and methods to extract knowledge from data. In support of this goal, the NCI is announcing an opportunity for supplemental funding to ITCR investigators for adaptations to informatics tools or methods specifically linked to use cases involving childhood cancer data.
The process for being considered for a CCDI supplement will involve the following:
Please keep in mind that supplements cannot be awarded during periods of No Cost Extension. Therefore, LOIs should not be submitted for grants that will be in NCE by September 2020.
