Continued Extension of Policy Flexibilities for Basic Experimental Studies Involving Humans (BESH)


NIH has extended flexibilities for registration and results reporting for studies submitted to BESH funding opportunities. This policy flexibility, originally announced in NOT-OD-18-212 and NOT-OD-19-126, is now extended through September 24, 2023.

While BESH investigators are strongly encouraged to register their studies and report summary results to, NIH is continuing to offer the flexibility for investigators to register and report results on alternative publicly available platforms at this time. It is important to note that this flexibility only applies to studies submitted through funding opportunities that are designated as “Basic Experimental Studies with Humans” in the title.
