Cancer Advisory Board on exceptional scientific opportunities that could be accelerated through this initiative.

As part of the Cancer Moonshot initiative, the NCI created the Drug Resistance and Sensitivity Network (DRSN), a collaborative network of centers of excellence (supported by U54 cooperative agreement awards) focused on using advanced techniques and models to accelerate understanding of issues of cancer resistance or extreme sensitivity to anticancer agents.

The DRSN was also developed to assist in issues of cancer drug resistance in the development of NCI investigational new drug (IND) agents (i.e., those that the NCI is developing in collaboration with pharmaceutical industry partners) in NCI-sponsored early phase clinical trials.

This FOA supports supplemental funds to current NCI-funded research projects for new interdisciplinary collaborations between non-U54 investigators and DRSN U54-supported investigators to perform research within the scientific scope(s) of the parent grant and/or cooperative agreement award(s) that will lead to improved pre-clinical evaluations of novel discoveries in cancer drug resistance that could ultimately be tested in NCI-sponsored clinical trials.
