NCCAM funds Developmental Centers for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Bethesda, MD--The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is forging new partnerships between complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) institutions and major research universities in an innovative effort to advance research on widely used CAM practices. The first two Developmental Centers for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine (DCRC) will help to build a collaborative CAM research community that will enhance the scientific rigor in this field.

"These new Centers provide a vehicle for scientists in CAM institutions to partner with established investigators in conventional research institutions to conduct rigorous exploratory and developmental research projects on CAM," said Margaret A. Chesney, Ph.D., NCCAM Deputy Director. "The DCRC is one of three types of NCCAM Research Centers that will offer research flexibility, promote collaboration, and expand NCCAM's research program," she added.

The purpose of the DCRC initiative is to:

  • Increase the level and quality of CAM research by assisting CAM institutions, researchers, and practitioners in conducting high-quality research;
  • Promote research expertise and infrastructure within the CAM community; and
  • Support enhanced communication and partnerships between CAM and conventional medical research institutions so that established researchers will gain the clinical and cultural perspectives needed to undertake CAM research.

The first two 3-year grants in the DCRC initiative have been awarded to:

  • Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, Davenport, IA
    Principal Investigator: William Meeker, D.C., M.P.H
    This DCRC will focus on the mechanisms of action and effects of chiropractic manipulation (adjusting the spine from different positions using varying degrees of force), especially for the common problem of low back pain. Scientists at the Palmer Chiropractic University will collaborate with in
