This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications for investigator-initiated multi-site clinical trials (e.g.
efficacy, effectiveness or pragmatic trials) to study the effects of mind and body interventions in NCCIH designated areas of high research priority.
Coordinating Centers should develop and implement the proposed multi-site clinical trial.
The objective of a Clinical Coordinating Center application is to present the scientific rationale and a comprehensive scientific and operational plan for the clinical trial.
Clinical Coordinating Center applications are expected to describe plans for project management, participant recruitment and retention strategies, performance milestones, scientific conduct, and dissemination of results.
Clinical Coordinating Center applications submitted under this FOA will utilize a two-phase, milestone-driven cooperative agreement (UG3/UH3) funding mechanism.
