Summary:  The CAP Research Awards RFA (RFA 19.2-CAP:RA) will support investigator-initiated research projects designed to do the following: (1) Identify risk factors for cirrhosis and HCC in Texas populations and predictors of high risk for progression of cirrhosis to HCC, including environmental and behavioral factors, genetic markers, and health disparities; (2) Identify and validate biomarkers and/or imaging methods that will enhance the surveillance and better stratify patients with cirrhosis leading to detection of HCC at an early stage; (3) Increase implementation of evidence-based interventions for the prevention and/or early detection of HCC among populations at high risk; (4) Conduct health services research in populations at highest risk for developing cirrhosis and HCC designed to identify most effective ways to address the disparities (eg, through systems change, outreach, access) and delivery of early detection and preventive care. The CAP Collaborative Action Center RFA (RFA 19.2-CAP:CAC) seeks to support a single Collaborative Action Center (Center) that will catalyze interactions and enable data sharing among the awardees of the CAP Research Awards and will forge innovative relationships among academic content experts, health providers, and policymakers in Texas to promote awareness and implementation of best practices for HCC prevention and early detection.
