Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers (U54)

Funding Opportunity PAR-14-169 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites U54 cooperative agreement applications for Physical Science-Oncology Centers (PS-OCs). The PS-OCs will serve as hubs for the collaborative Physical Sciences-Oncology Network (PS-ON). The goal of the PS-OC Program and broader Network is to promote a physical sciences perspective of cancer and foster the convergence of physical science and cancer research by, forming transdisciplinary teams of physical scientists (e.g., engineers, chemists, computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists) and cancer researchers (e.g., cancer biologists, oncologists, pathologists) to work closely together to advance our understanding of cancer biology and oncology. The PS-OCs, individually and as a Network, will support transdisciplinary research that: (1) establishes a physical sciences perspective within the cancer research community; (2) facilitates team science and field convergence at the intersection of physical sciences and cancer research; and (3) collectively tests physical sciences-based experimental and theoretical concepts of cancer and promotes innovative solutions to address outstanding questions in cancer research.

CONCLUSIONS: Our observations indicate that treatment of Hep-2 laryngeal cancer cells with ELFEMF for 30 min at 25-50 mT and EP Au-NPs can cause cell damage inducing apoptosis and cell cycle arrest. PMID: 31746453 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
