The NIH’s National Cancer Institute (the NIH is the parent organization of the ITM) will fund $4 million to approximately 10 exploratory projects that develop or validate emerging technologies that contribute to targeting, probing, or assessing molecular and cellular features of cancer biology. Projects should show potential to improve cancer biology research, early detection and screening, clinical diagnosis, treatment, control, epidemiology, and/or address issues associated with cancer health disparities.
