Abstract This report provides a summary of the distribution of the Fiscal Year 2011 budget among the various National Cancer Institute (NCI) research programs and funding mechanisms, funding policies influencing grant awards, and comparisons with prior year allocations. Funds available to the NCI in FY 2011 totaled over $5.058 billion, reflecting an decrease of -0.8% and -$40 million from the previous fiscal year. Fiscal highlights from FY 2011 include: Of the total NCI budget, 43% of the funds were allocated for Research Project Grants (RPGs). The total number of RPGs funded was 5,019 (includes SBIR). Almost one-fourth of the RPGs awarded were new (Type 1) or competing renewal (Type 2) awards. 1,106 competing RPGs were funded. One-third of the total NCI budget supported ongoing non-competing (Type 5) RPGs. R01 grants were funded to the 7th percentile. 144 grants totaling over $84 million were funded as Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) awards. Intramural Research comprised about 16% of the total NCI budget in FY 2011. Of this amount, 10% was for Labs and Bench Research and the remaining 6% was for infrastructure and support.
