NIH/NIA R21/R33 CARinG Pilot Grants
- Nine awards will be funded during the grant period
- The goal is for this internal pilot funding to serve as a foundation/model upon which future investigators will design and initiate research projects leading to externally funded awards and foster research collaborations across cancer centers.
- Each application must be accompanied by a letter of support from the institution of the investigator, and must discuss explicitly how CARG infrastructure resources (e.g. data, Core support) are needed to facilitate the next steps for the research
Pilot Grant 1
Overall Objective: Develop and test a technology-mediated DPT, which integrates personalized information on risk factors for adjuvant chemotherapy-related toxicity in older women with breast cancer
Aim 1: Conduct a secondary analysis of patients enrolled on NCT01472094 to determine the association between clinical factors and reduced RDI of a prescribed chemotherapy regimen.
Aim 2: Adapt a DPT to include personalized information regarding risk of chemotherapy toxicity and risk of reduced RDI, and evaluate the usability of the DPT in ten older adults considering adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer.
