Collaborative Activities to Promote Cancer Cachexia Research (Admin Supp - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of the Administrative Supplements for Collaborative Activities to Promote Cachexia Research is to support collaborative, multidisciplinary basic and translational research that addresses an important question in cancer cachexia and to expand the cadre of investigators experienced in cancer cachexia study design, model systems and data interpretation. These supplement applications must propose a collaboration between cancer researchers and researchers with documented expertise in cachexia research. The parent grant for the supplement must have an NCI primary assignment. Overall, the long-term goal of this supplement program is to encourage a focused examination of the biology of cancer cachexia and its effect on organs and systems beyond the tumor site(s).

    Amount Description

    Application budgets are limited to no more than $100,000 direct costs per year, exclusive of consortium/contractual Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs, for a maximum of 2 years. Budget requests must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.

    The funding mechanism being used to support this program, administrative supplements, can be used to cover cost increases that are associated with achieving certain new research objectives, as long as the research objectives are within the original scope of the peer reviewed and approved project, or the cost increases are for unanticipated expenses within the original scope of the project. Any cost increases need to result from making modifications to the project that would increase or preserve the overall impact of the project consistent with its originally approved objectives and purposes.
