Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (P30)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites grant applications for Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers (EHS CC).  As intellectual hubs for environmental health research, the EHS CC is expected to be the thought leaders for the field and advance the goals of the NIEHS Strategic Plan (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/about/strategicplan/). The Core Centers provide critical research infrastructure, shared facilities, services and /or resources, to groups of investigators conducting environmental health sciences research.  An EHS CC enables researchers to conduct their independently-funded individual and/or collaborative research projects more efficiently and/or more effectively. The broad overall goal of an EHS CC is to identify and capitalize on emerging issues that advance improving the understanding of the relationships among environmental exposures, human biology, and disease.  The EHS CC supports community engagement and translational research as key approaches to improving public health. 

Only one application per institution is allowed.  Anyone wishing to be considered for these nominations should submit 1) a CV or NIH biosketch and 2) a one page description of the proposed project to Dr. Michelle Broido, Associate Vice Chancellor for Biomedical Research, three months before the application deadline.  These should be sent to Dr. Broido c/o Ms. Selena Crawford, sac32@pitt.edu
