Additional Information on Eligibility
Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply. Eligible agencies of the Federal Government are eligible to apply. Canadian institutions Foreign applications are limited to Canada due to Canada s proximity to the NIH which will accommodate the frequent conference calls and meetings among awardees. Practice based research networks are one example of a clinical setting suitable for the type of research described in this RFA, but other clinical settings may be equally capable of conducting this type of research. Applications that do not meet the eligibility criteria (i.e., are not responsive) will be returned without review. This funding opportunity is for new applications.
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) invites applications to conduct Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs) to test the effectiveness of interventions delivered in routine clinical practice on achieving weight loss in obese patients who have other CardioVascular Risk Factors (CVRFs). Effectiveness of weight-loss interventions in routine clinical practice are the primary focus.
