ICI grants are restricted awards that support investigator-initiated projects for up to 2 years. Awards may be up to $100,000 per year (direct costs), plus 12% allowable indirect costs. (Note: ICI adheres to NIH’s guidelines as it relates to salary cap. The 12% cap on directs applies to each year). Two-year grant submissions should include mid-grant milestones (at approximately 12-months) for the purpose of evaluating progress toward overall project goals. These milestones must be achieved in order to qualify for the second year of funding. In addition, all projects are evaluated for their potential clinical impact.

Topics of Special Interest:

The Creation and Analysis of Data Resources to Further Cancer Research:

Of interest are both research that leads to the creation and analysis of new data resources of genomic, clinical, imaging, microbiome, and other data from cancer patients and the analysis of current data resources. Topics include data and analysis to increase understanding of cancer, the comparative effectiveness of approved treatments, targets for new treatments, and to develop hypotheses about somatic or germline genetic markers predictive of response to therapy. The focus should be on data resources that are likely to have near or intermediate-term clinical impact. Of particular interest are the creation of AI-ready data resources.
