Submit Proposals by October 3 for the “Smart Health and Biomedical Research” Initiative

NCI is one of the 23 NIH institutes and centers participating with the National Science Foundation (NSF) in an interagency, reissued funding opportunity called the “Smart Health and Biomedical Research in the Era of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Data Science.”

The Smart and Connected Health program supports innovative, high-risk/high-reward research with the promise of disruptive transformations in biomedical research. NCI is interested in applications that align with NCI’s mission and scientific priorities. Proposals must make contributions to two or more disciplines (e.g., computer/information sciences, engineering, social, behavioral, biomedical, cognitive, and/or economic sciences) to improve the understanding of biomedical- and health-related processes and address a key health problem.

The deadline for the proposal is October 3, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. (submitter’s local time).

This solicitation aims to address technological and data science-oriented challenges that require fundamental research and development of new tools, workflows, and methods across many dimensions. Such dimensions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Fairness and trustworthiness
  • Transformative analytics in biomedical and behavioral research
  • Next generation multimodal and reconfigurable sensing systems
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Robotics
  • Biomedical image interpretation
  • Unpacking health disparities and health equity
