CAM at Minority or Health Disparities Research Centers: - This initiative will support basic science research projects and clinical research projects to investigate the safety, efficacy, and mechanisms of action of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practices as they relate to racial and ethnic health disparities. Eligibility for this initiative is limited to institutions with minority health research centers or health disparities research centers funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). - Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award also will vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the type of research (preclinical and clinical research projects have different parameters), quality, duration, and costs of the applications received. - This PAR will use the NCCAM exploratory/developmental grant (R21) mechanisms. - Applications may be submitted by domestic, for-profit or non-profit organizations, public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; or units of State and local governments. Foreign institutions are not eligible. - Eligible principal investigators include all individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, as well as women and persons with disabilities, are encouraged to apply as PIs. - Applicants may submit more than one application, provided that they are scientifically distinct. - Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 9/2004). The PHS 398 is available at in an interactive format.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply. To be eligible for this initiative, applicants must have received an NIH- or AHRQ-funded grant for a research center on minority health or a research center on health disparities. To assist in determining eligibility for this PAR, interested potential applicants should check the list of the NIH RFAs and PAs from which an institution needs to have received center grant funding at the URL ( which is also listed above in Part I Overview Information. The application must include a letter from the Minority Health Center Director or Health Disparities Center Director assuring the availability of the Center's resources for collaboration on the project. To be appropriate for this PAR, applications must propose research projects that relate to a health disparity disease or condition and are consistent with the research focus of the applicant center. Although the DHHS and NIH Initiatives target six health disparity conditions (cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, HIV/AIDS, adult and child immunizations, and infant mortality), applications that address another disease or condition that is the subject of research at the applicant institution's minority health center or health disparities center are appropriate for submission. Those applicants seeking funding for basic, mechanistic, or preclinical research to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of CAM therapies and to provide a stronger foundation for ongoing and planned clinical studies may propose projects in any CAM domain. Investigators in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, neurosciences, endocrinology, immunology, genetics, pharmacology, and other relevant fields of inquiry who are interested in applying their expertise and contemporary technologies to help advance the science of CAM are encouraged to apply.
