Program accomplishments...

In FY 2003 138 Individual FTTP (Full Time Training Position) awards were made and 72 were competing awards totaling $2,941,000; 182 Institutional awards were made and 30 were competing awards totaling $9,076,000; 486 Career awards were made totaling $71,845,000; 102 Cancer Education awards were made totaling $30,041,000. In FY 2004, it is estimated that 926 Manpower awards will be made. In FY 2005, it is estimated that 967 Manpower awards will made. During this period, the NCI has been implementing a new strategic plan that places greater emphasis on protecting the time and stabilizing the careers of MD's in research and prevention and control scientists; nearly all of the growth in the program has focused on these two fields. Both of these fields are threatened by either managed care medicine or academic culture and they are both critical to the translational research success of the NCI in the future.
