The purpose of the Cancer Prevention, Control, Behavioral and Population
Sciences Career Development Award (K07) is to support the career
development of investigators who have made a commitment to focus their
research endeavors on cancer prevention, control, behavioral and the
population sciences. This is achieved by providing protected time
through salary and research support for up to 5 years to individuals
with a health professional or science doctoral degree who are 1) already
proficient in GENERAL epidemiology, behavioral sciences, or other
relevant disciplines, and now want to make use of these proficiencies in
cancer-focused research careers in prevention, control, population
and/or the behavioral sciences, or 2) already trained in cancer
epidemiology, etiology, prevention, control and the behavioral and
population sciences but are not yet fully independent investigators.
Examples of relevant disciplines for this Program Announcement (PA)
include any aspect of human cancer prevention (modifiable risk factors,
new animal models and extrapolation of these models to human cancer,
genetic predisposition to cancer and detection of precursor lesions,
patient-oriented research focused on cancer prevention, and behavioral
research and behavioral intervention trials in cancer prevention),
epidemiology (biochemical, genetic, molecular), biostatistics, human
cancer genetics, clinical oncology, human nutrition, behavioral and
social sciences, health promotion, health services and health policy
research; and medical decision analysis, survivorship and quality of
life as they relate to cancer.

For the purpose of this PA, cancer control research is defined as "basic
and applied research in the behavioral sciences that independently or in
combination with biomedical approaches, reduces cancer risk, incidence,
morbidity, and mortality across the lifespan and over the entire process
of carcinogenesis from primary behavioral prevention in youth, to
screening, treatment, and survivorship" (Report of the NCI Cancer
Control Progress Review Group, 1998). Additionally, patient-oriented
research is defined as research conducted with human subjects (or on
material of human origin such as tissues, specimens, and cognitive
phenomena) for which an investigator directly interacts with human
subjects. This area of research includes 1) mechanisms of human
disease; 2) therapeutic interventions; 3) clinical trials; and 4) the
development of new technologies.
