• Notice of NIAMS Policy for Submission of Applications Containing Clinical Trials
    National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases

Effectively immediately, NIAMS will not accept investigator-initiated R01 applications and subsequent revisions containing clinical trials.


Please note that NIH’s definition of a clinical trial is broader than most:


“A clinical trial is a prospective biomedical or behavioral research study of human subjects designed to answer specific questions about the safety, tolerability, efficacy and/or effectiveness of pharmacologic, behavioral, biologic, surgical, or device (invasive or non-invasive) interventions.”
