Part of the National Institutes of Health, the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) "is dedicated to exploring complementary and alternative healing practices in the context of rigorous science, training complementary and alternative (CAM) researchers, and disseminating authoritative information to the public and professionals." Some of the many NCCAM research priorities for this year are arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, immunology, digestive diseases, and mental health. The research section of the NCCAM website provides information sections for Funding Opportunities, Research Tools, Applying for Research Grants, Research Across the Country, and more. The site also has a Plans and Priorities section that covers research priorities, strategic plans, and funding strategy. Research tools available from the site include the NCCAM Grantee Publications Database, NCCAM Staff Bibliography, NIH CRISP Database, and CAM on PubMed.
