June 22, 2021 - 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Join the Clinical Trials Support Office for an educational session covering introductory information on the NIH SF424 Forms-F Application – the Human Subjects & Clinical Trials Form. This session, held on Tuesday, June 22 from 12:00 to 1:00 PM, is for researchers who are planning to submit a proposal to the NIH in one of the upcoming cycles. Hear from Erin Miller, M.S., and Stephan Taylor, M.D., from the Department of Psychiatry to learn how to navigate the proposal guide and complete the Human Subjects & Clinical Trials Form. 

Topics include:

  • Selecting an appropriate funding announcement for your study
  • Determining if your study is a clinical trial
  • Details on K award proposals – many contain at least 2 studies/study records as outlined by NIH 
  • Learn how each study record in your proposal requires its own Human Subjects & Clinical Trials Form
  • Information on the four sections of the Human Subjects & Clinical Trials Form, and how it can increase documentation for each study

Stephan Taylor, M.D., is an Associate Chair for Research and Research Regulatory Affairs, and a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry. He is NIH-funded and has served on study sections. His research uses brain imaging, brain stimulation, and behavioral techniques to study psychosis, particularly early psychosis, and to develop and improve treatments for psychiatric disorders.
