This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications that seek to integrate two or more independent data sets to answer novel cancer control and prevention questions.  The goal is to encourage applications that incorporate Integrative Data Analysis (IDA) methods to study behavioral risk factors for cancer, including tobacco use, sedentary behavior, poor weight management, and lack of medical adherence to screening and vaccine uptake. It is encouraged that the data being merged are from different sources and types (including both quantitative and qualitative; data may span different levels such as genetic and environmental) and include at least one source of behavioral data.  Importantly, to be considered for funding, applicants must use existing data sources rather than collect new data.  In addition, creating harmonized measures, developing culturally sensitive measures, replicating results and cross-study comparisons is encouraged.
