This Notice is to remind potential applicants that the receipt date
for applications for the NIEHS Core Center Grants Program is
February 1 each year.  NIEHS Core Center Grants provide support for
an administrative structure, scientific leadership, and shared
equipment to multidisciplinary groups of productive scientists with
programs in environmental health.  Direct research support is NOT
provided by the grant, except for limited funds for pilot projects.

The NIEHS currently supports eighteen Environmental Health Sciences
(EHS) and five Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences (MFBS)
Centers.  Because of limitations on the number of centers that can
be supported and the special nature of the program, potential
applicants are strongly urged to contact NIEHS staff to discuss the
scope, content, size, and timing of any applications for this
program.  Applications received for the February 1, 1998 receipt
date will compete with five extant EHS Core Centers, and two extant
Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences Core Centers, for funding
early in Fiscal Year 1999.  Applications having a research program
focused on environmentally related health problems of underserved
and/or economically disadvantaged populations are particularly


Guidelines for this program, including fiscal limitations, review
criteria, and additional information are available from:
