The Innovative Molecular Analysis Technologies (IMAT) program was established to support the development, technical maturation, and dissemination of novel and potentially transformative next-generation technologies through an approach of balanced but targeted innovation. In support of its mission, the IMAT program utilizes a variety of investigator-initiated research project grant mechanisms while retaining a strong commitment to diversity and to the training of scientists and clinicians in cross-cutting, research-enabling disciplines.
The NCI is very pleased to announce that the IMAT program has approved reissuance for funding opportunity announcements through calendar year (CY) 2014. Please revisit this website for updates on the coming announcements and receipt dates.
Please see the links below for active funding opportunities to understand the FOAs from of the program.
Funding opportunities in technology development are intended to support the inception, maturation, and subsequent dissemination of technically innovative and potentially transformative emerging technologies. These opportunities exist in parallel with various educational and training programs aimed at the recruitment, retention, and promotion of a diverse pool of talent in areas of emerging technology.
Cancer Detection, Diagnosis, and Treatment Technologies for Global Health (UH2/UH3)
The NCI has issued a new solicitation to support the development of cancer-relevant technologies suitable for use in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Specifically, the FOA solicits applications for projects to adapt, apply, and validate existing or emerging technologies into a new generation of user-friendly, low-cost devices or assays that are clinically comparable to currently used technologies for imaging, in vitro detection/diagnosis, or treatment of cancers in humans living in LMICs. more +
