NCI Announces Availability of Administrative Supplements for NCI Funded Research Projects in AIDS-Associated Malignancies

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) recently announced the availability of funds in Fiscal Year 2009 (FY09) for administrative supplements in AIDS-associated malignancies to ongoing NCI-funded research projects. The funds available through these administrative supplements are intended to encourage and support new multidisciplinary scientific collaborations among eligible NCI grantees and between those grantees and other members of the scientific community. This initiative, known as the NCI Activities to Promote Research Collaborations in AIDS-Associated Malignancies (NCI APRC-AAM), supports collaborative interdisciplinary activities that bring together ideas and approaches from disparate scientific disciplines.

To be eligible for these administrative supplements, the requestor must be the principal investigator of an active R01, R37, P01, U01, R33, R42, or R44 grant, which has at least one full year remaining at the time of anticipated funding (September 1, 2009). Moreover, the parent grant must be active and the proposed collaborative activity must remain within the overall scope of the active "parent" award but must also reflect new collaborative interactions that enhance the originally funded project. Investigators funded by NCI who are interested in applying for an NCI APRC-AAM administrative supplement should contact the NCI Program Official responsible for the relevant parent grant award prior to submitting a request to discuss whether the planned collaborations are responsive. Do not send applications to the NIH Center for Scientific Review. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit requests electronically as an e-mail attachment in PDF format. The e-mail address for electronic submission is:; however, applicants may also submit applications in paper format (original and 4 copies) to:
