National Cancer Institute; Notice of Closed Meeting

Pursuant to section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, as amended (5 U.S.C. Appendix 2) notice is hereby given of the following meeting.

The meeting will be closed to the public in accordance with the provisions set forth in sections 552b(c) (4) and 552b(c) (6), Title 5 U.S.C., as amended. The purpose of this meeting is to evaluate requests for development resources for potential new cancer diagnostics. The outcome of the evaluation will be information for consideration by an internal NCI committee that will decide whether NCI/DCTD should support the requests and make available contract resources for development of the potential diagnostics to improve the treatment of cancer. The research proposals and the discussions could disclose confidential trade secrets or commercial property such as patentable material, and personal information concerning individuals associated with the proposed research projects, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

Dated: October 2, 2012. Melanie J. Gray, Program Analyst, Office of Federal Advisory Committee Policy.
