Scientific Questions?

You may find it helpful to discuss your proposed research with a staff member prior to submitting a grant application.

The most efficient way to get the answer to your scientific question is to email the most appropriate program director at NCCIH.  If the question concerns the appropriateness of a research project, formulate a short description of the project and email it the most appropriate program director (refer to specific interest areas). This will allow the program director the time needed to provide you with the most informed answer to your question. It also provides an efficient means for the parties to schedule a teleconference for an in-depth discussion when required.

If you have general questions about NCCIH, please contact the NCCIH Clearinghouse at
