The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential applicants that NHLBI accepts investigator-initiated basic experimental studies involving humans (BESH) that meet NIH’s definition of a clinical trial only in response to PA-18-345 NIH Research Project Grant (Parent R01 Clinical Trial Required) and its reissues. NHLBI considers BESH studies as fundamentally important to its mission, and directs investigators interested in such research to PA-18-345 or its reissue.
I f the proposed research project includes a clinical trial other than a mechanistic or basic experimental study with humans, applicants are strongly advised to contact NHLBI staff to determine the appropriate alternative NHLBI-specific clinical trial FOA. Applicants are also encouraged to refer to the NHLBI Policy Regarding Submission of Clinical Trial Applications (see NOT-HL-18-611).
