Objectives: To reduce cancer risk, incidence, morbidity, and mortality and enhance quality of life in cancer survivors through an orderly sequence from research on interventions and their impact in defined populations to the broad, systematic application of the research results through dissemination and diffusion strategies. Primary emphasis is on the inclusion of cancer prevention and control intervention(s) in any proposed study. Cancer Prevention and Cancer Control research studies are classified into one of five phases: (1) Hypothesis development; (2) methods development and testing; (3) controlled intervention trials to establish cause-and-effect relationships; (4) research in defined populations; and (5) demonstration and implementation studies. Primary interests are in research on cancer control interventions in Phases 2 through 5, and on cancer prevention research in all phases. Cancer Prevention and Control programs include those in the following areas: (1) cancer epidemiology; (2) cancer communications; (3) nutrition, diet, and physical activity; (4) screening and early detection in health care delivery; (5) biobehavioral mechanisms; (6) tobacco control; (7) health disparities research; (8) supportive care and survivorship; (9) health services and outcomes research; and (10) surveillance research. Cancer Control uses Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs to engage domestic small business concerns in federal research and development that has potential for commercialization. The goals of the SBIR & STTR Programs are to stimulate technological innovation, increase private-sector commercialization of federal research and development, increase small business participation in federally funded research and development, and foster participation by socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns and women-owned small business concerns in technological innovation. The STTR Program requires the small business concern to formally collaborate with a research institution in Phase I and Phase II of the program.
