Description: Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), encourages Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant applications from small business concerns (SBCs) that propose the development and clinical validation of systems for image-guided interventions (IGIs) for cancer. Specifically, the goals of this program are to provide support for: the development and optimization of fully integrated cancer imaging, monitoring, and therapy systems; the validation of integrated image-guided intervention (IGI) systems through clinical evaluations; the development of multiple prototype integrated IGI systems as required for multisite clinical evaluations; and partnerships among small business, large business, and academic clinical centers, as well as small business joint ventures, in order to reach the research goals. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the STTR (R41/R42) grant mechanisms for Phase I, Phase II, and Fast-Track applications and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical scientific scope, PA-10-079 that encourages applications under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program (R43/R44) grant mechanisms. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. Awards issued under this FOA are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
