Submit Your Cancer Research Proposal to NIH’s New Multimodal AI Funding Opportunity

Do you have an idea for advancing health research (including cancer research) through multimodal artificial intelligence (AI)? Would you like to collaborate with researchers who are experts in biomedical research, ethics, and quantitative research (such as computer sciences, applied mathematics, and AI)? If so, apply for this Research Opportunity Announcement (ROA)! Tackle biomedical challenges by using collaborative and participatory approaches that involve multiple modes of AI.

An informational webinar was held on April 19, 2024, and a recording is now available.

Letters of intent (which are optional but strongly encouraged) are due April 29, 2024. Proposals are due on May 16, 2024, by 5:00 p.m. local time.

Through the Advancing Health Research through Ethical, Multimodal AI Initiative, NIH hopes to create better AI approaches to model, interpret, and predict complex, multiscale biological, behavioral, and health systems. This will not only improve our understanding of health but also our ability to identify and treat human illnesses, such as cancer.

You have a chance to work with a diverse group of research experts and end users alike to develop and test new models using ethical, multimodal AI technologies. You can help NIH build a portfolio of projects that use ethics-driven AI to address systems-level biomedical challenges with a combination of data types. To ensure effective collaboration, make sure your project employs a co-design approach that involves continual and iterative feedback among different aspects of the project (including model development, data preparation, and data collection).

If you have any questions about this ROA, you can send an email to program officials.
