The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program (SRP) is announcing participation in PA-10-071 "NIH Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (Parent R13/U13)" effective immediately.
The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986 mandates the NIEHS Superfund Research Program to establish a multi-disciplinary research program to develop: (1) advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effect on human health of hazardous substances; (2) methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; (3) methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; and (4) basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances. By participating in PA-10-017, the SRP broadens the scientific scope of the current NIEHS R13 program to include non-biomedical environmental science topics reflected in the SRP mandates.
Please follow the guidelines and instructions found on the NIEHS Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (R13/U13) webpage: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/funding/grants/mechanisms/r13u13/index.cfm.
