The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has published a Request for Information (RFI) in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts seeking input from all stakeholders with interests in bioethics and cancer research, clinical care, and/or public health.
In 2016, a Cancer and Bioethics Working Group comprised of NCI staff members was formed; its goals are to foster bioethics/ELSI (Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications) research, and to coordinate outreach activities to educate members of the cancer community on bioethics/ELSI issues.
To better realize these goals, the members are seeking input from community members, patients, cancer researchers, physicians and other health practitioners, bioethicists, advocates, and others to help identify bioethics areas clearly relevant to cancer but in need of further development, as well as bioethics areas which are ready for translation in a cancer context. They are also seeking input on approaches for enhancing bioethics and cancer collaborations, and timely issues for bioethics and cancer outreach.
