The Global Cancer Project Map (GCPM)
Purpose: The Global Cancer Project Map, released on March 25, 2015, is a web-based platform that catalogs international cancer research, cancer care, and cancer outreach programs. The platform aligns cancer care efforts of governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, academic institutions and industry partners.
The creation of the Global Cancer Project Map and its potential to facilitate cancer control and research programs in resource-poor settings have been a result of an alliance between Global Oncology, Inc. and the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Global Health. Thanks to the database expertise and content standards provided by the National Cancer Institute, a component of the National Institutes of Health and an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Global Cancer Project Map provides resources to partners across the world to address the challenges of cancer and reduce cancer-related deaths.
Objectives: The GCPM’s primary objectives are to:
- Facilitate the breaking down of silos and building of collaboration
-Accelerate progress, ensure a balanced investment of resources, and align global cancer care and cancer efforts
-Provide resources to view and better understand international efforts in cancer research and control
Special thanks to the Center for Global Health National Cancer Institute, U.S.A.

Pulmonary non-tuberculous myobacterial infections

 

 

Notice of NIAIDs Interest in Biomedical Research in non-AIDS associated, Pulmonary Non-Tuberculous Mycobacterial (NTM) Infections
NIH Notice NOT-AI-17-016 >>
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

Pulmonary non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections are increasing and are now the dominant mycobacterial infections in the US and much of the developed world, far surpassing tuberculosis. In order to stimulate and facilitate the development of knowledge, drugs and diagnostics, and determine whether a vaccine or other immune interventions are feasible, additional information on the disease process and its effects are needed. NIAID is issuing this notice to highlight its interest in receiving grant applications focused on basic and translational research in non-AIDS associated pulmonary non-tuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) infections. See the above notice for areas of interest.

Possible funding opportunities that can be used to pursue these research activities include:

You are strongly encouraged to discuss your research project with the NIH scientific program official for the institute which most closely relates to your project.
