As part of NCCIH’s current strategic plan, there is a strong focus on advancing fundamental science of the mechanisms by which mind-and-body approaches affect health, resiliency and well-being. Additionally, NCCIH has a robust clinical research program to assess the safety and efficacy/effectiveness of a range of mind-and-body approaches for treatment and/or management of care for hard-to-manage symptoms, as well as integrating effective approaches into the overall healthcare system. A key part of the NCCIH mission is to enhance the health research workforce for complementary and integrative health. This session will explore research priorities by NCCIH, and funding opportunities for research training related to mind-and-body health approaches.
