NIEHS Specific Information:

Research projects and career development experiences proposed in response to this Announcement will be expected to have a defined impact on the environmental health sciences and be directly responsive to the mission of the NIEHS, which is distinguished from other Institutes by its focus on research programs seeking to link the effects of environmental exposures to the cause, mechanisms, moderation, or prevention of a human disease or disorder or relevant pathophysiologic process.  Applications must include as part of the justification the specific human disease, dysfunction, pathophysiologic condition, or relevant human biologic process altered, and the specific environmentally relevant toxicant.  Examples of environmentally relevant toxicants include industrial chemicals or manufacturing byproducts, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, fungal, bacterial, or biologically derived toxins.  Agents considered non-responsive to this announcement include, but are not limited to:  alcohol, chemotherapeutic agents, radiation which is not the result of an ambient environmental exposure, drugs of abuse, and infectious or parasitic agents.  Ecologic, biomonitoring, biotransformation or biodegradation studies are also not responsive.  Applications from individuals with backgrounds in chemistry or environmental engineering will only be responsive when the degree and previous research are in the physical sciences, with essentially no biological or biochemical experience.  The intent of the application is to allow quantitative scientists to apply their research expertise to biological problems; therefore, career development programs must propose to develop expertise in biological applications, and any program proposing additional training in quantitative areas will be considered non-responsive.  Applications must demonstrate a significant career shift.  Preference will be given to candidates whose mentor has NIEHS research grant support.
