Transitions in the Division of Extramural Activities

Dr. David Shurtleff
April 3, 2017

Please join me in wishing the best to Dr. Martin Goldrosen, who has retired after 16 years with NCCIH, the last 9 as Director of the Division of Extramural Activities. Dr. Goldrosen’s contributions to the Center and NIH, especially in administrative oversight, grants policy and management, and peer review, have been immeasurable. We will miss his thoughtful advice and good judgment.

Using Clinical Practice Guidelines as a Starting Point to Direct Research Work

Dr. Josephine Briggs
March 28, 2017

Earlier this month, I posted about the new American College of Physicians clinical practice guidelines on noninvasive treatments for low-back pain. Clinical practice guidelines are important for many reasons, in particular to assist in the diagnosis and health management of the patient, but guidelines don’t always change health care. They do, however, provide a starting point for researchers to consider how to improve care. Researchers can use guidelines to see what gaps exist in the evidence and identify what key research questions have yet to be answered.

New NIH Funding Opportunity Announcements for Human-Animal Interaction Research 

NCCIH is now accepting applications for three new funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) for research to examine: (1) the impact of Human-Animal Interaction (HAI) on typical and atypical child development and health; (2) the evaluation of animal-assisted intervention for children and adults with disabilities or in need of rehabilitative services and; (3) the effects of animals on public health, including cost effectiveness of involving animals in reducing and preventing disease.
