NIEHS Specific Information:

NIEHS supports research investigating how environmental exposures, genetic susceptibility, and age interact to affect an individual's health and influence the development and progression of human disease. 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.  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 resulting from an environmental exposure.  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, smoking (except as a component of indoor air and childhood exposure), drugs of abuse, and infectious or parasitic agents.

Salary Support:
