    This webinar will provide an overview of the R01 and R21 funding opportunity announcements (FOA), U.S. Tobacco Control Policies to Reduce Health Disparities PAR-17-217 (R01) and PAR-17-218 (R21).

    These FOAs will support research to:

    1. understand how to improve the effectiveness of existing tobacco control policy strategies to reduce health disparities in tobacco use;
    2. study new policy approaches to reduce health disparities in tobacco use.

    The National Cancer Institute seeks applications on observational or intervention-based research to reduce health disparities in tobacco use among vulnerable populations in the United States. Specifically, these opportunities intend to stimulate scientific inquiry focused on innovative tobacco control policies. The long-term goal of this funding is to reduce disparities in health outcomes, thereby reducing the excess disease burden of tobacco use within these groups.

    First application due date: October 11, 2017
    Letter of Intent due date: September 11, 2017
