New National Institutes of Health policies affect all researchers | Penn State University
New initiatives at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) mean changes to the definition of a clinical trial. Effective Jan. 25, all researchers must know whether their research falls under NIH’s definition of a "clinical trial" in order to apply for funding; if researchers impacted by the change do not select a funding opportunity that supports clinical trials when they apply to NIH, their grant will be rejected without review. More information is available via a website and an overview session to be held Jan. 16.
