The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is accepting applications for the following opportunities:
CTSC Explorys Collaborative Pilot
The CTSC is accepting applications for Explorys Collaborative Pilots. The purpose of this pilot funding opportunity is to innovate and collaborate with Explorys informatics personnel to develop novel or enhance existing approaches for expanding the use of BIG DATA in organizing, integrating, searching, analyzing, or visualizing health care data. Successful applications will involve two or more disciplines, with a focus on building innovative clinical research informatics, aligned with a key Explorys focus area as listed above and allocate no more than a third of the budget on supporting development efforts or analysis by Explorys.
Deadline: December 14

They feature phospho-protein and intracellular signaling assay kits designed for use with whole cell lysates and others complex matrices. Clinical biomarker assays for analysis of serum, plasma and tissue culture samples are also available.
Cancer Care Video Challenge
The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) in conjunction with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), invites cancer patients, survivors, and their families and friends to create short, compelling videos sharing a personal story that describes a goal of a cancer patient or survivor, and how technology (such as health IT or consumer eHealth tools) is used to support meeting that goal. There are a variety of tools and applications that can be used to help patients and their families navigate the various aspects of living with or transitioning from cancer treatment to survivorship.
The purpose of the challenge is to generate videos that will inspire and motivate others to become more engaged in their care, through the use of consumer e-health tools and other health IT to improve communication and collaboration with their health care team (doctors, nurses, and other allied health care professionals), and better manage their cancer-related care.
The deadline to submit a video is December 21. Cash prizes are available to the winners.
