NIH Congressional Justification for FY 2019 Email from Rachel Levinson, Executive Director, ASU National Research Initiatives, April 16, 2018 - The NIH has posted its Congressional Justification and materials related to the administration's FY 2019 budget request for the agency to the NIH Office of Budget website at: https://officeofbudget.od.nih.gov/br.html.   The Overview is available at: https://officeofbudget.od.nih.gov/pdfs/FY19/br/Overview.pdf Justifications for individual institutes and centers are available at https://officeofbudget.od.nih.gov/insti_center_subs.html Please keep in mind that this is just the first step in proposing the Administration’s FY19 budget plan.  Congress largely ignored this last year and passed appropriations bills that provided increases in science and engineering budgets.  Those figures became the base from which this Congressional Justification was developed. That said, this is quite specific in listing Significant Items (see tab) as these respond to topics of interest to Congress and point to areas that are likely to continue to receive funding in FY19.

NIH redefines clinical trials, attracting critics – Jocelyn Kaiser, Science 357(6348), July 21, 2017
“. . . The policy change began to emerge in 2014, when NIH revised its definition of clinical trials to include studies that evaluate the effects of ‘interventions’ such as ‘manipulation … of the subject's environment’ on ‘health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.’  Then, last September, NIH announced more extensive requirements for all trials the agency funds. . . . Few basic behavioral and brain researchers who study humans took notice of the change, because they didn't think of their studies as clinical trials. But that changed early last month, after William Riley, director of the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, . . . warned that many studies in disciplines under his office's purview could fall under the new policy, which kicks in with applications submitted in January 2018. . . .”
