Identifying Non-coding RNA Targets for Early Detection of Cancer (R01): PA-12-213
FOA Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), encourages research projects on non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) and their targets in preneoplastic lesions and early stage cancers. This FOA also encourages research projects to assess the usefulness of stable microRNAs (miRNAs) and ncRNAs to predict progression to cancer and as biomarkers for early cancer detection and screening. Building on both basic and biomarker research on microRNAs (miRNA), this FOA will further promote research on all classes of ncRNAs and support the translation of stable miRNAs into cancer screening or diagnostic tests.
