NIMH Policy for the Recruitment of Participants in Clinical Research
In 2005, NIMH instituted the NIMH Policy for the Recruitment of Participants in Clinical Research to monitor the recruitment of participants in NIMH-sponsored clinical research studies that expect to enroll 150 or more human subjects in a single study. In 2016, NIMH expanded this policy to apply to all NIMH extramural-funded clinical research studies proposing to enroll 150 or more subjects per study, and all clinical trials, regardless of size.
