Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Financial support for research training and career development in CAM

    The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) offers research training and career development awards for those seeking a career in CAM research.

    Drs. Partap Khalsa and Nancy Pearson from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland have published an article describing the opportunities.

    In addition, the National Institutes of Health website describes funding opportunities to support “outstanding advanced postdoctoral research scientists during their transition to independence.” The award supports up to 1 year of postdoctoral research training and 3 years of research as an independent investigator.
