NEI Policy Regarding Support of Clinical Trials and Large Multi-centered Clinical Studies Research on Career Development Awards (K-series)

Notice Number: NOT-EY-09-001

Key Dates
Release Date:  December 9, 2008

Issued by
National Eye Institute (NEI) (http://www.nei.nih.gov/)

Purpose

The National Eye Institute (NEI) supports an extensive portfolio of large, multi-centered clinical studies, clinical trials, and clinical trials-related research.  All applications for clinical trials and large multi-centered clinical studies must meet the established review criteria for NEI support (see http://www.nei.nih.gov/funding/u10ct.asp) and present plans for patient safety and/or data monitoring.

The purpose of this Notice is to inform potential applicants for K-series awards (http://grants.nih.gov/training/careerdevelopmentawards.htm) that the NEI will not accept K-series applications which propose to conduct a new, free-standing clinical trial or large multi-centered clinical study.  Clinician scientists who seek training in the conduct of clinical trials or large multi-centered clinical studies should propose an independent ancillary study within an on-going project, or should participate in a mentored clinical research program.  Career development applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in the planning, design, and implementation of such research in order to gain the training and experience necessary to become independent clinical investigators.
