The purpose of the Administrative Supplements for Collaborative Activities to Promote Cachexia Research is to support collaborative, multidisciplinary basic and translational research that addresses an important question in cancer cachexia and to expand the cadre of investigators experienced in cancer
cachexia study design, model systems and data interpretation.
These supplement applications must propose a collaboration between cancer researchers and researchers with documented expertise in cachexia research.
The parent grant for the supplement must have an NCI primary assignment.
Overall, the long-term goal of this supplement program is to encourage a focused examination of the biology of cancer cachexia and its effect on organs and systems beyond the tumor site(s).
Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss potential requests with the NCI scientific contacts listed below.
