The National Institutes of Health, otherwise known as NIH, is a federal government agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily responsible for pursuing and encouraging the country's biomedical and health-related research studies.
The programs and grants of the NIH are all designed to contribute to the achievement of its general agency mission which is to "seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability."
In keeping with this mission, the National Institutes of Health has recently collaborated with the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH) to establish the Pilot Studies of Innovative Treatments in Mental Disorders Program.
The program is primarily established in an effort to solicit ideas and studies that can potentially evaluate the feasibility, tolerability, acceptability and safety of novel mechanism drug candidates and promising psychosocial techniques that can all be used for the successful treatment and management of mental disorders.
The funds that will be awarded under this grant can be utilized to support full scale scientific studies and innovative research services concentrating on the pilot testing of pharmacologic agents, medical devices, psychosocial approaches or a combination of any of the following approaches.
