Meet Our Associate Director
An Interview with Kathy J. Helzlsouer, M.D., M.H.S.
Dr. Helzlsouer speaks about her background in oncology and epidemiology, the people and experiences that drive her passion for cancer research, and her ideas about future directions for EGRP.
New Guidance Documents for Researchers Conducting Studies on Immune Response to COVID-19 Vaccines
Investigators involved with NCI's Serological Sciences Network (SeroNet) have created guidance documents for researchers conducting studies on the immune response to vaccines to encourage harmonization across studies and to allow for cross-study comparisons.
Request for Information
NCI is seeking information on opportunities to leverage populations participating in NCI’s National Clinical Trial Network (NCTN) and Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) for observational cohort studies to fill evidence gaps in cancer survivorship knowledge. Responses are requested by May 3, 2021. View details in the NIH Guide, NOT-CA-21-036.
Physical Activity Assessment Resources
Check out our compilation of research resources related to physical activity, including analytical & assessment tools and datasets, including recently released National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) Physical Activity Monitor Data.
Information on Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs) and How They Work
A NOSI describes aims in a specific scientific area and points to one or more funding opportunity announcements that investigators can apply to for support. Visit our overview of NOSIs for additional details.
