NCCIH is excited to inform the extramural community about our updated approach to funding clinical trials of promising complementary or integrative health approaches with a physical, psychological, or integrative intervention (often called mind and body interventions). With the recent release of NCCIH’s new Strategic Plan (2021-2025), the Clinical Research in Complementary and Integrative Health Branch within the Division of Extramural Research has evaluated and updated the funding opportunity announcements for intervention development and testing. NCCIH will still provide funding for important feasibility trials and adaptation of intervention when it is needed.
The new approach aims to streamline the timeline from feasibility trials to impactful multi-site clinical trials that are fully powered to assess the efficacy or effectiveness of interventions.
Join us on Thursday August 5, 2021 from 2:00 pm-3:00 pm ET for a technical assistance webinar to learn more about NCCIH’s updated Framework for Clinical Research and new priorities for our clinical research portfolio. Please register to attend. You will have the opportunity to have your questions answered during the latter Q&A portion of the webinar. If you are unable to join the webinar, please submit questions in advance by August 4, 2021 to NCCIHwebinarQ@mail.nih.gov.
