All NIAMS grantees intending to conduct clinical research (all research 
involving human participants) should be aware that before an award is 
made, NIAMS will routinely consider the necessity of substantial 
program staff technical involvement or participation in programmatic 
activities of the award. These activities may include (but are not 
limited to): participation in the design or direction of research or 
training activities, coordination or participation in collection or 
analysis of data, and assistance in the management and technical 
performance of the activity.  If such involvement is deemed desirable 
by the NIAMS, the award mechanism will be converted to a cooperative 

As with any award, continuation is conditional upon satisfactory 
progress, even during the period recommended for support. NIAMS may 
conduct periodic external peer review of progress for any clinical 
research project.
