This PA announces the replacement of the NCI Institutional Clinical
Oncology Research Career Development (K12) Program (PAR-03-083 at
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-03-083.html) with the
Paul Calabresi Award for Clinical Oncology (K12) or PCACO. The
purpose of the PCACO is to increase the number of medical doctors
(M.D.'s, D.O.'s), and doctorally-degreed nurses (Ph.D.s or
equivalents) and basic scientists (Ph.D.s D.V.M.s, or equivalents)
who are highly-motivated and trained to: 1) perform clinical oncology
therapeutic research that develops and tests scientific hypotheses
based on fundamental and clinical research findings; 2) design and test
hypothesis-based, clinical therapeutic protocols and adjunct biological
analyses and for clinician candidates to administer all phases (i.e.,
pilot/Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III) of cancer therapeutic clinical
trials, and (3) conduct cancer therapeutic research in team research
settings in which basic and clinical scientists collaborate and
interact to expedite the translation of basic research discoveries into
patient-oriented therapeutic cancer research. The PCACO is not intended
to train laboratory-based scientists whose research will emphasize the
use of animal or other model systems.

For the purposes of this award, and in agreement with the
recommendations of the NIH Directors Panel on Clinical Research,
(http://www.nih.gov/news/crp/97report/index.htm), patient-oriented
research is defined as research conducted with human subjects (or on
material of human origin such as tissues, specimens and cognitive
phenomena) for which an investigator directly interacts with human
subjects. This area of research includes 1) mechanisms of human
disease; 2) therapeutic interventions; 3) clinical trials, and; 4) the
development of new technologies. Studies falling under Exemption 4 for
human subjects research are not included in this definition.

The NCI has named this award in honor of the late Dr. Paul Calabresi,
who was a pioneer in the pharmacological treatment of cancer and early
translational research. It recognizes him for his humanity, dedication
to his patients, mentorship of young clinical oncologists,
contributions to understanding and curing of cancer, untiring efforts
to promote and develop the field of clinical oncology, and ceaseless
service to the National Cancer Institute including his participation in
the strategic development of the Nations War on Cancer. Most of all,
this award is intended to symbolize the quality and excellence of the
physician scientists and the non-clinician translational researchers
that NCI hopes will become critical contributors to the future
elimination of death and suffering from cancer.

Individuals with medical degrees seeking a career development
experience exclusively in laboratory-based research should refer to the
NIH Mentored Clinical Scientist Career Development Award or K08 at the
following website: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-003.html. Individuals with medical degrees interested in patient-
oriented research should refer to the NIH Mentored Patient-Oriented
Research Career Development Award or K23 at the following website:
Postdoctoral individuals (e.g., Ph.D.s) trained in laboratory-based
research, who wish to change direction and focus their research careers
on human cancer, should refer to the NCI Howard Temin Award or K01 at
the following website:
