In November, NIH announced the publication of new funding opportunities specifically for Basic Experimental Studies Involving Humans (BESH) (see Open Mike Blog).
Need help determining if your research fits within the scope of a BESH funding opportunity announcement (FOA)? Check-out these new resources:
- New FAQs
- Table comparing Funding Opportunity Types by Clinical Trial Allowability
- Guidance for Determining if a Study Falls Within a BESH FOA
We have also updated our Clinical Trial Case Studies to include examples of Basic Experimental Studies Involving Humans (see Cases #9, #14, #40, #41). Want to narrow down the list of Case Studies? Try the keyword filter to sort and view Case Studies by study type.
Note that participation in funding opportunities for Basic Experimental Studies with Humans will vary by NIH Institute and Center (IC). Many ICs will continue to accept Basic Experimental Studies with Humans through existing FOAs that accept clinical trials (FOAs designated as Clinical Trial Required or Clinical Trial Optional). It is important to check with a Program Officer to determine the most appropriate FOA for your application.
