The National Cancer Institute (NCI) invites applications for the development and
delivery of novel image acquisition or enhancement technologies and methods for
biomedical imaging and image-guided interventions and therapy, and which may
incorporate limited pilot or clinical feasibility evaluations using either pre-
clinical models or clinical studies. This initiative is primarily intended to
facilitate the proof-of-feasibility, development, and delivery of novel imaging
technologies for early detection, screening, diagnosis, image-guided
interventions, and treatment of various diseases, and, secondarily, to
facilitate limited evaluation studies to show proof-of-concept and

The interests of NCI focus on imaging in vivo for cancer pre-conditions, cancer
screening, diagnosis, progression, treatment monitoring, recurrence, and image-
based surrogate end points. NCIs interests include development and delivery of
imaging technologies that are cancer-specific, and optimization and validation
of imaging technologies for cancer applications. The scope includes system
integration, contrast agents, pre- and post-processing algorithms and software
for imaging, image understanding, and related informatics that are cancer

This PA is directed toward the development, optimization, and delivery of
innovative image acquisition and enhancement methods, including high-risk/high-
gain research on technologies, such as: (a) novel single and multimodality
molecular imaging systems, methods, agents, and related software and
informatics, including the integration of these technologies with emerging
biomedical imaging methods for more effective health care delivery for cancer
and other diseases and (b) novel single and multimodality anatomical and
functional imaging systems, methods, agents, and related software and
informatics for more effective health care delivery for cancer and other
diseases. In addition, research partnerships among investigators in both
academia and device and drug industries are encouraged to more rapidly translate
and deliver completed imaging system developments.

This solicitation utilizes the Exploratory/Developmental Phased Innovation Award
(R21 Phase 1 and R33 Phase 2) grant mechanisms, and runs in parallel with a
program announcement of nearly identical scope and intent PA-04-094
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-04-094 ) that utilizes the Small
business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer
Research (STTR) award mechanisms based on small business set aside funds.

Phased Innovation Awards benefit from expedited evaluation of progress following
the Phase 1 exploratory/feasibility study for expedited decision on transition
to Phase 2 funding for expanded developmental work.
