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.
