Applicants for the Child Abuse and Neglect K01 should have experience in relevant disciplines and propose a mentored research program to enable application of novel or highly promising interdisciplinary approaches to the study of child abuse and neglect. Applicants for the Population Research K01 must be junior-level researchers with a research or health professional doctorate degree and must propose a mentored research program that will enhance their ability to conduct scientifically sophisticated studies in the field of population research. Please see NOT-HD-07-010 for additional information about eligibility requirements for population research applications (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-HD-07-010.html).

NIEHS Specific Information:

Research projects 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 that of 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. Applicants must demonstrate  a significant career shift or career enhancement activity which  will achieve research independence upon completion of the program. Preference will be given to candidates whose mentor has NEIHS research grant support.
