Notice of Special Interest: Understanding the Basic Mechanisms of Immune-related Adverse Events (irAEs) in Cancer Immunotherapy

The overall goal of this Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) is to promote mechanistic research aimed at better understanding the pathophysiology of immune-related adverse events (irAEs). It is anticipated that the mechanistic research supported through this NOSI will build the foundational knowledge which will ultimately lead to better strategies to predict, prevent and/or ameliorate toxicities that can arise as a consequence of current immunotherapeutic regimens, and improve treatment outcomes. The proposed research can be basic or translational but should be focused on revealing the mechanisms underlying irAEs. Single investigators and/or multidisciplinary teams with relevant expertise in the research area proposed and/or patient characterization and selection are encouraged to apply.
