Section II. Award Information:

National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH)

The mission of NCCIH is to determine, through rigorous scientific investigation, the usefulness and safety of complementary health approaches, and their roles in improving health and healthcare. NCCIH's strategic plan includes three scientific objectives: 1) Advance fundamental science and methods development; 2) Improve care for hard-to-manage symptoms; and 3) Foster health promotion and disease prevention. NCCIH also has cross-cutting objectives to enhance the complementary and integrative health research workforce, and to disseminate objective evidence-based information on complementary and integrative health interventions. In pursuit of these objectives, NCCIH supports research on mind and body interventions, practices, and disciplines; research on natural products; and studies of “real world” patterns and outcomes of use of complementary therapies. Studies may range from basic, through translational, epidemiological, health services, and other human subjects research, but may not propose a clinical trial.  Investigators are strongly encouraged to discuss their concepts with NCCIH program staff prior to applying.
