  • Applications are due by 5 pm submitter's local time. 
  • Although a letter of intent is not required, is not binding, and does not enter into the review of a subsequent application, the information that it contains allows IC staff to estimate the potential review workload and plan the review.

The overall objective of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support innovative research on adducts to cellular macromolecules as indicators of exposures to endogenous and exogenous cancer risk factors relevant to exposures in human populations. The priority is on projects that will focus on adductomic approaches, i.e., address some aspects of the totality of adducts.

The ultimate goal is to discover and characterize the utility of adductomic-based exposure indicators for:

  • Cancer detection,
  • Cancer prevention, and/or
  • Assessing cancer risks.

In well-justified cases, innovative studies using the adductomic approaches in the context of cancer etiology and/or gene-environment interaction research may also be appropriate. For projects intended for NIEHS support, the focus may be on innovative technology and method development.
