Physical and Engineering Sciences in Oncology

by:

The National Science Foundation, otherwise referred to as NSF, is a United States Government agency that is primarily responsible for pursuing and ensuring fundamental research studies and education in all the non-medical fields of science and engineering.

The programs and activities of the NSF are administered in an effort to help them realize their mission, which is "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense."

In keeping with this mission, the National Science Foundation, in close cooperation the National Cancer Institute, has recently developed the Physical and Engineering Sciences in Oncology Program wherein they intend to obtain a more thorough understanding of cancer disorders with the application of physical and engineering sciences.

The folks at NSF believe that the discovery of significant advances is greatly possible as a result of the consistent investments in inter- and multi-disciplinary research studies concerning the application of physical/engineering and life sciences and its impact on unraveling the cause and origin of cancer cell formation.

In addition, the NSF perceives that these advances will significantly contribute to the prevention, early detection, and efficient treatment of cancer disorders. Which is very much essential because cancer is one of the most fatal diseases in the world today.

The proposals that will be submitted to the NSF should include the following:

Agriculture and Food Research Initiative: National Institute of Food and Agriculture Fellowships Grant Program
The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative grant program revolves around the premise of providing funds to both fundamental and applied research studies, education, and extension that would hopefully address concerns related to food and agricultural sciences.


Health Care Innovation Challenge
The Centers for Medicare and & Medicaid Services has recently established the Health Care Innovation Challenge in an attempt to solicit proposals to establish interesting new models of service delivery that can potentially deliver the three-part aim of better health, better health care, and finally, lower costs through the improved quality of Medicare, Medicaid, and Children's Health Insurance Program.


Cancer Education Grants Program
The National Cancer Institute has developed the Cancer Education Grants Program wherein it seeks to financially support innovative educational efforts that would contribute to the reduction of cancer incidences, morbidity and mortality rates; as well as the improvement of the quality of life of surviving cancer patients.
