The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has invited call for proposals on Indian Cancer Research Consortium (ICRC).

India Cancer Research Consortium (ICMR-ICRC) is a research collaboration established under the aegis of the Indian Council of Medical Research-Department of Health Research (ICMR-DHR) to promote, articulate and prioritize cancer research in our country.

The idea behind establishing the consortium is to identify the gaps in cancer research in India by bringing together all stakeholders-government/non-government institutions/academic institutions/ industry to improve cancer outcome.

The research proposals are invited under six thematic areas. They are prevention & epidemiology, diagnostics, therapeutics, palliative care, basic biology and innovation.

The sub areas that have been identified under the thematic groups are Covid and cancer, tobacco and cancers, cancers in special groups (tribal population), development of newer tools and early diagnostics for cancer, ovarian cancers (correlation with rampant use of infertility drugs and incidence of ovarian cancers), alcohol and obesity related cancers and development of validation assay/tool/solution which are ready to be rolled out for clinical trial in 3 years.

The proposals should focus on outcomes that are readily translatable into practice and it should be innovative and promote development of indigenous technologies.

The priority will be given to projects that are ready for implementation/scalability in the form of deliverables and point of care technologies and to projects from North-East region, considering the high incidence and paucity of data on cancer in the North-East

Scientists, professionals who have a regular employment in medical colleges or research institutes/universities/recognized research & development laboratories/government and semi-government organizations and NGOs (documentary evidence of their recognization including DSIR/SIRO certificate would be required with the application) are eligible for the proposals.

Last date for submitting the proposal is October 01, 2021.
