The purpose of NCCAM's Centers of Excellence for Research on CAM (CERC; P01) program is to support multidisciplinary, synergistic, multi-project research programs that have strong potential to advance the mission of NCCAM and to increase understanding of the mechanisms of action, optimal application, safety, efficacy and/or effectiveness of complementary/alternative medicine (CAM). Each proposed CERC should have a well-defined, central research focus or objective that is of high priority to NCCAM, For a successful CERC application, the relevant research area(s) must be sufficiently mature to be able to effectively leverage this multi-project mechanism.
Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF number) is allowed.
NCCAM anticipates making approximately 2 - 3 awards yearly for the duration of this FOA (2014). It is strongly recommended that applicants not request a budget of more than $1,250,000 in direct costs per year. These costs are exclusive of subcontract facilities and administrative costs. The maximum project period for these awards is 5 years. Starting with new and renewal P01 grants reviewed and funded in fiscal year 2013, only one more renewal will be allowed.
