Working on a study that might meet both the definition of basic research and the NIH definition of a clinical trial? Check out our new webpage on Basic Experimental Studies involving Humans (BESH). This webpage contains new resources to help investigators:
- understand the definition of BESH,
- differentiate between a measurement and an intervention,
- answer the 4 key questions that determine if a study meets the NIH definition of a clinical trial – from a BESH perspective,
- and more!
We have also updated our library of clinical trial case studies, designed to help you identify whether your study would be considered by NIH to be a clinical trial.
