NCCAM funds Developmental Centers for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine

vestigators at the University of Iowa, Kansas State University, the State University of New York at Stony Brook, and the National University of Health Sciences in Illinois. The total award is approximately $2.3 million.

  • New England School of Acupuncture, Watertown, MA
    Principal Investigator: Peter M. Wayne, Ph.D.
    This Center will evaluate the efficacy and safety of acupuncture, develop methodologies and study designs required for acupuncture research, and address the benefits of acupuncture in the treatment of women's health problems. This Center will build upon collaborations between clinicians and scientists at the New England School of Acupuncture, the Osher Institute at Harvard Medical School, and two other major Harvard-affiliated institutions, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Children's Hospital (Boston). The total award is approximately $2.0 million.

    These first two DCRCs demonstrate dynamic and committed partnerships between CAM and conventional institutions. This program is also expected to develop and strengthen preliminary CAM research studies that will lead to the submission of competitive R01 grant applications to NIH, the benchmark for a mature research program.

    The DCRC is one of three new NCCAM research center programs. They were implemented following the review of the NCCAM centers program by an expert panel in 2002. The panel reviewed the original CAM centers that were established shortly after creation of NCCAM in 1999. Based on the lessons learned from these first centers, and in response to the evolving opportunities and challenges in CAM research, the expert panel recommended a more diverse platform of approaches to support research centers and a sharpened focus on their pursuit of original science. In response to these recommendations, NCCAM designed the following three new programs to build its next generation of research centers:
