IOM staff developed and distributed a survey to assess the responsiveness of NCI to minority investigator-initiated research and funding opportunities. More than 850 surveys were mailed to individuals who are members of the following groups or organizations:
Appalachian Leadership Initiative on Cancer (principal cancer investigators),
Hispanic Cancer Network,
Intercultural Cancer Council,
Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (fields related to cancer only),
NIH Minority Supplement Trainees, and
American Association for Cancer Research (members of the minority section only).
The results of the survey are summarized in Chapter 4. A copy of the survey is included in Appendix E.
