NIH: Interdisciplinary Complementary and Integrative Health Clinical Research Training Award (T90/R90)PAR-13-065

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is establishing this clinical research training program aimed at improving the capacity of the integrative health field to carry out rigorous research. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will fund coherent and unified partnerships between institutions with research intensive environments (e.g., T32 and CTSA institutions) and institutions with curricula focused on clinical training of practitioners in complementary modalities and disciplines that also have faculty with a substantial interest in rigorous clinical research. The program will support mentored research training and hands-on experiences in clinical research, as well as trainee-focused developmental efforts including didactic activities in clinical research methodology, integrative health, and trainee-initiated pilot clinical research projects within NCCAM's research priority areas. The funded institutional programs are expected to generate a cadre of research clinicians who are able to participate fully in multi-disciplinary teams engaged in complementary and integrative health research.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White ( by November 6, 2014. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.
