> As many of you will have heard by now, NIH has adopted a new policy that denies the distinction between basic research and clinical trials, and, starting in January 2018 requires virtually all basic research studies to be registered as a clinical trial. This policy is outlined here:

> The goal of fostering openness, transparency, & replicability is a good one that we endorse but this is not the way to get there.
> It will make exploratory research more difficult, mislead the public, and burden researchers and their institutions with new bureaucratic requirements that will accomplish nothing. 
> NIH officials have already heard objections from many directions, but so far they seem to be considering at most small tweaks to their policy. 
> Therefore several of us have drafted an Open Letter to Francis Collins outlining the reasons for our objection to the new policy.

> Please consider signing the Open Letter, which you can find here: https://ipetitions.com/petition/open-letter-nih-collins <https://ipetitions.com/petition/open-letter-nih-collins>

> You can also write a comment on the policy here:
