This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications to participate in the Implementing Genomics in Practice (IGNITE) II:
Pragmatic Clinical Trials Network.
This network will conduct pragmatic clinical trials to measure the clinical utility and cost-effectiveness of genomic medicine
interventions; assess approaches for real-world application of genomic medicine in diverse clinical settings; and produce generalizable knowledge on the types of genomic medicine interventions requiring randomized clinical trials and effective methods for conducting them.
Applicants to this FOA are expected to recruit a minimum of 35% of patients who come from racial or ethnic minority populations, underserved populations, or populations who experience poorer medical outcomes.
In contrast, applicants to the companion RFA HG-17-009 are expected to recruit a minimum of 75% of such patients.
