NCCIH's Research Centers Program
On this page:
NCCIH supports research centers to conduct multidisciplinary research not readily supported through other funding mechanisms.
Centers of Excellence for Research on CAM
These Centers support three or four major, synergistic research projects each, and are focused on elucidating mechanisms of action of CAM. (P01 mechanism; R01-level projects)
For more information, contact Partap Khalsa, D.C., Ph.D.
Centers for Dietary Supplements Research: Botanicals
These interdisciplinary and collaborative dietary supplement centers will advance understanding of how botanicals affect human health. Studies of the safety, effectiveness, and biological action of botanical products are major focuses for the five research centers.
Note: These Centers constitute the NIH Botanical Research Center Program.
