  • Applications are due by 5 p.m. 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.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support the development and characterization of state-of-the-art biomimetic tissue-engineered technologies for cancer research. Collaborative, multidisciplinary projects that engage the fields of regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, biomaterials, and bioengineering with cancer biology will be essential for generating novel experimental models that mimic cancer pathophysiology. The projects supported by this FOA will establish and collectively participate in the Cancer Tissue Engineering Collaborative (TEC) Research Program.

The Cancer TEC Program will:

  • Catalyze the advancement of innovative, well characterized in vitro and ex vivo systems available for cancer research,
  • Expand the breadth of these systems to several cancer types, and
  • Promote the exploration of cancer phenomena with biomimetic tissue-engineered systems.
