This PAR supersedes PAR-01-056 published in 2001. The goal of this
initiative is to encourage innovative clinical and epidemiological research
into new therapies or means of prevention of digestive and liver diseases,
nutritional disorders and obesity. The Small Clinical Research Grants
Program is designed to support short-term clinical studies and help stimulate
the translation of promising and potentially relevant new developments from
the laboratory into the clinical setting. This PAR specifically encourages
the submission of applications for pilot studies relating to
gastrointestinal, pancreatic and liver diseases and nutritional disorders
including obesity. They should focus on research that is particularly
innovative and/or potentially of high impact. High impact research involves
feasibility studies in which the technological, methodological, or
theoretical approach to a problem lacks an historical precedent or sufficient
preliminary data, but whose successful outcome would have a major effect on a
scientific area.

The small grants may be used as planning grants for full-scale multi-center
clinical trials or for pilot studies that could lead to full-scale multi-
center clinical trials designed to provide evidence for or against changes in
the current standard of care. Such trials may use pharmacological, dietary,
surgical, endoscopic, physical activity, or behavioral interventions aimed at
disease therapy or prevention. Pilot epidemiological studies are encouraged
that could lead to more extended research that would provide evidence for or
against changes in health policy, especially as related to disease
prevention. It is expected that these small clinical grants will serve as a
basis for planning future multi-center research project grant applications
(R01) or cooperative agreement (U01) awards.

The major changes in this PAR are a refocus on different priority areas and
an added stress placed upon innovative approaches to translate new findings
from basic research into practical means of diagnosis, treatment and
prevention of digestive and nutritional diseases (bench-to-bedside research).
