NOTICE OF LIMITED COMPETITION - REQUEST FOR COMPETING SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATIONS:  
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY RADIATION THERAPY CLINICAL TRIALS SUPPORT

Release Date:  October 19, 2001

NOTICE:  NOT-CA-02-001

National Cancer Institute

The NCI is announcing a limited competition for competing supplemental 
applications from the participating institutions of the Advanced Technology 
Radiation Oncology Clinical Trials Support Centers  (ATC) which were funded 
through RFA-CA-98-006 
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-CA-98-006.html).  
This will continue a unique ongoing project at its current scope. 
The NCI wants to maintain the ATC with its present structure since any 
organizational change would require a rebuilding of infrastructure and 
interruption in the conduct and accrual of ongoing clinical trials. This would 
compromise the resources available to the research community. This is 
particularly important now because many clinical trial groups are initiating 
radiation therapy that uses advanced technologies and which must therefore 
have access to quality assurance resources that are compatible with the 
complexity of the treatments. The ATC awardees will continue to maintain and 
further develop the hardware and software tools that enable credentialing, 
remote review and archiving of 3D images and dose distributions along with the 
multivariable treatment records. 

NCI staff will contact the current grantees directly regarding application 
procedures and format.

Written and telephone inquiries concerning this may be directed to:
