Improving Outcomes for Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivors (U01 Clinical Trial Required)
Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) will stimulate the scientific development of effective, feasible, and scalable interventions to address adverse physical and psychosocial effects in survivors of pediatric and/or adolescent/young adult (AYA) cancers. These interventions may be delivered by providers, communities, and/or healthcare systems.
This FOA is associated with the Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Treatment, Access, and Research (STAR) Act of 2018 that is intended to maximize and accelerate discovery, development, and availability of promising childhood cancer treatments. This FOA is also associated with the Beau Biden Cancer MoonshotSM Initiative that is intended to accelerate cancer research in general.
This FOA requests applications from investigators to develop and test interventions that prevent, mitigate or manage adverse outcomes in pediatric and/or AYA cancer survivors and/or evaluate models of care that strengthen coordination, continuity, and quality, or that reduce access barriers to needed services including follow-up care, and that improve outcomes across the survivor's lifespan. Development of interventions to address disparities in outcomes and/or access to needed care, and to address the needs of minority or medically underserved pediatric and/or AYA populations is of high priority.
