Applicants should review the NIH Guide Notice, Clarifying NIH Priorities for Health Economics ResearchExternal Web Site Policy (NOT-OD-16-025) prior to submitting applications. The notice states that NIH will continue to accept applications involving health economics research in which health outcomes and health-related behaviors are the primary focus, and the connection between the subject(s) of the study and improved understanding of health are clear and explicit. Applicants are encouraged to include text in their abstract that addresses the explicit link between aims and health outcomes; uses language from priorities described in the notice; and identifies NIH/NCI priorities addressed by the proposed research.
