Section I. Funding Opportunity Description


Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites revision applications (formerly called "competing revisions") from currently funded NIH P50 program projects with at least two years remaining on the project. These revision applications are expected to focus on the interactions of carcinogenic pathogens with the human microbiome and the host for the detection of pathogen-induced cancer (DPIC). This FOA encourages research to assess molecular signatures associated with risk and early detection of pathogen-induced cancer and chronic inflammation associated with progression to invasive cancer. Studies proposed in the revision applications must correspond to a new research project expanding the scope of the parent Program Project grant.

Background and Rationale

Microbial Pathogens and Carcinogenesis. More than 20% of cancers worldwide are known to be associated with microbial pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. Numerous epidemiological studies have reported an increased risk of precancerous lesions and cancers associated with pathogens. It is widely believed that perturbations in the composition of the human microbiota may increase the risk of, or cause, cancer.  This has led to the hypothesis that the microbial ecosystem and interactions between infectious pathogens and host cells play a critical role in modulating cancer-related pathways. Systemic factors, such as the microbiome, inflammatory status, and other microbial-related factors might also modulate progression of precancerous lesions to aggressive cancer.

Carcinogenesis associated with infection is a complex process in which infectious pathogens frequently induce a cascade of events culminating in chronic inflammatory responses, which predisposes the target tissues to increased cancer susceptibility. However, we currently lack sufficient knowledge to explain why only a small fraction of individuals, who are exposed to cancerous pathogens, are predisposed to cancer and will develop cancer. The human microbial ecosystem or microbiome is defined as microbes (including Bacteria, Archaea, protozoa, Fungi and viruses) that colonize humans, and their complex dynamic interactions with each other and the host cells. This microbial ecosystem plays a critical role in regulating pathways which are associated with chronic inflammation and predisposition to pathogen induced cancerous transformation.

Composition of the human microbiome in health and disease. Microbial pathogens, which induce directly or indirectly, invasive cancers and their complex interactions with the host and its microbial ecosystem, are obvious targets for cancer risk assessment, early detection and molecular prevention. Until recently it was impossible to address questions of how a pathogen’s virulence and or infectivity may be affected by the composition of the host microbial ecosystem; how to identify genotypic changes in a pathogen that could promote or induce malignant transformation; how to detect new intracellular oncogenic pathogens; or how to detect and identify secreted microbial products that may affect host hormone homeostasis (e.g., estrogen metabolism) and indirectly cancer development. New technological advances, especially in sequencing technology, are enabling new discoveries of human microbial pathogens, the composition of the human microbiome in health and disease, and the host responses to such microbial pathogens.

Recent advances in DNA sequencing technologies, the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) (http://cancergenome.nih.gov/) and similar projects, as well as the Human Microbiome Project (HMP) (http://commonfund.nih.gov/hmp/), provided through their databases and resources, a unique opportunity to develop new molecular signatures for risk, early detection and targets for prevention. HMP revolutionized the sampling, identification, and analysis of the human microbiome and identified new microbes. This FOA should build upon data, resources and tools generated through the HMP and TCGA projects.

Specific Research Objectives

This FOA encourages research applications on the interactions of carcinogenic pathogens with the human microbiome and the host aimed at integrating cancer prevention, especially the development of biomarkers for risk, early detection, diagnosis and prognosis, with the clinical human microbiome. Multidisciplinary efforts are encouraged to foster new collaborations between investigators with expertise, which includes, but not limited to, biomarkers, clinical microbiology, human microbiome, immunology, and infectious diseases.

Research topics that may be addressed in response to this FOA include, but are not limited to, the following:

Potential applicants are advised to consult with the Scientific/Research Contact listed under Section VII. Agency Contacts for appropriateness of submission to this FOA.

Section V. Application Review Information


1. Criteria

Only the review criteria described below will be considered in the review process. As part of the NIH mission, all applications submitted to the NIH in support of biomedical and behavioral research are evaluated for scientific and technical merit through the NIH peer review system.

Overall Impact

Reviewers will provide an overall impact score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved, in consideration of the following review criteria and additional review criteria (as applicable for the project proposed).

Scored Review Criteria

Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria below in the determination of scientific merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.

Significance

Does the project address an important problem or a critical barrier to progress in the field? If the aims of the project are achieved, how will scientific knowledge, technical capability, and/or clinical practice be improved? How will successful completion of the aims change the concepts, methods, technologies, treatments, services, or preventative interventions that drive this field?   

Investigator(s)

Are the PD(s)/PI(s), collaborators, and other researchers well suited to the project? If Early Stage Investigators or New Investigators, or in the early stages of independent careers, do they have appropriate experience and training? If established, have they demonstrated an ongoing record of accomplishments that have advanced their field(s)? If the project is collaborative or multi-PD/PI, do the investigators have complementary and integrated expertise; are their leadership approach, governance and organizational structure appropriate for the project?  

Innovation

Does the application challenge and seek to shift current research or clinical practice paradigms by utilizing novel theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions? Are the concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions novel to one field of research or novel in a broad sense? Is a refinement, improvement, or new application of theoretical concepts, approaches or methodologies, instrumentation, or interventions proposed?   

Approach

Are the overall strategy, methodology, and analyses well-reasoned and appropriate to accomplish the specific aims of the project? Are potential problems, alternative strategies, and benchmarks for success presented? If the project is in the early stages of development, will the strategy establish feasibility and will particularly risky aspects be managed? 

If the project involves clinical research, are the plans for 1) protection of human subjects from research risks, and 2) inclusion of minorities and members of both sexes/genders, as well as the inclusion of children, justified in terms of the scientific goals and research strategy proposed?   

Environment

Will the scientific environment in which the work will be done contribute to the probability of success? Are the institutional support, equipment and other physical resources available to the investigators adequate for the project proposed? Will the project benefit from unique features of the scientific environment, subject populations, or collaborative arrangements? Do the PD(s)/PI(s) and assembled collaborative research team have the appropriate resources, such as specimen banks of clinically annotated samples of normal and cancer cases?        

Additional Review Criteria

As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will evaluate the following additional items while determining scientific and technical merit, and in providing an overall impact score, but will not give separate scores for these items.   

Protections for Human Subjects

For research that involves human subjects but does not involve one of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate the justification for involvement of human subjects and the proposed protections from research risk relating to their participation according to the following five review criteria: 1) risk to subjects, 2) adequacy of protection against risks, 3) potential benefits to the subjects and others, 4) importance of the knowledge to be gained, and 5) data and safety monitoring for clinical trials.

For research that involves human subjects and meets the criteria for one or more of the six categories of research that are exempt under 45 CFR Part 46, the committee will evaluate: 1) the justification for the exemption, 2) human subjects involvement and characteristics, and 3) sources of materials. For additional information on review of the Human Subjects section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.

Inclusion of Women, Minorities, and Children 

When the proposed project involves clinical research, the committee will evaluate the proposed plans for inclusion of minorities and members of both genders, as well as the inclusion of children. For additional information on review of the Inclusion section, please refer to the Human Subjects Protection and Inclusion Guidelines.

Vertebrate Animals

The committee will evaluate the involvement of live vertebrate animals as part of the scientific assessment according to the following five points: 1) proposed use of the animals, and species, strains, ages, sex, and numbers to be used; 2) justifications for the use of animals and for the appropriateness of the species and numbers proposed; 3) adequacy of veterinary care; 4) procedures for limiting discomfort, distress, pain and injury to that which is unavoidable in the conduct of scientifically sound research including the use of analgesic, anesthetic, and tranquilizing drugs and/or comfortable restraining devices; and 5) methods of euthanasia and reason for selection if not consistent with the AVMA Guidelines on Euthanasia. For additional information on review of the Vertebrate Animals section, please refer to the Worksheet for Review of the Vertebrate Animal Section.

Biohazards

Reviewers will assess whether materials or procedures proposed are potentially hazardous to research personnel and/or the environment, and if needed, determine whether adequate protection is proposed.

Resubmissions

For Resubmissions, the committee will evaluate the application as now presented, taking into consideration the responses to comments from the previous scientific review group and changes made to the project.

Renewals

Not Applicable

Revisions

For Revisions, the committee will consider the appropriateness of the proposed expansion of the scope of the project. If the Revision application relates to a specific line of investigation presented in the original application that was not recommended for approval by the committee, then the committee will consider whether the responses to comments from the previous scientific review group are adequate and whether substantial changes are clearly evident.

Additional Review Considerations

As applicable for the project proposed, reviewers will consider each of the following items, but will not give scores for these items, and should not consider them in providing an overall impact score.   

Applications from Foreign Organizations
