The purpose of the NIH Clinical Trial Planning Grant (R34) is to provide
support for the development of a Phase III clinical trial, including the
establishment of the research team, the development of tools for data
management and oversight of the research, the definition of recruitment
strategies, and the finalization of the protocol and other essential elements
of the study included in a manual of operations/procedures. The Clinical
Trial Planning Grant is not designed for the collection of preliminary data
or the conduct of pilot studies to support the rationale for a clinical

An NIH-defined Phase III clinical trial is a broadly based prospective
clinical investigation, usually involving several hundred or more human
subjects, for the purpose of evaluating an experimental intervention in
comparison with a standard or control intervention or comparing two or more
existing treatments. Often, the aim of such investigation is to provide
evidence leading to a scientific basis for consideration of a change in
health policy or standard of care. The definition includes pharmacologic,
non-pharmacologic, and behavioral interventions for disease prevention,
prophylaxis, diagnosis or therapy. Community- and other population-based
intervention trials also are included.

The planning grant is designed to permit early peer review of the rationale
and design of the proposed clinical trial and to provide support for the
development of a detailed Manual of Procedures (MOP) including all elements
essential to the launching of a trial.

Investigators wishing to apply for an R34 grant should be aware that
individual ICs may have specific requirements for this funding mechanism and,
therefore, should consult IC staff to determine if an application is
appropriate. NIH Offices that participate in this PA (ORWH, OBSSR, ORD, ODS)
