National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
The NIEHS is providing an administrative supplemental funding opportunity to promote collaborations within the Nanomaterials Health Implications Research (NHIR) Consortium and/or to bring other investigators with additional expertise, tools, systems, and assays to enhance the research outcome from NHIR consortium efforts.
The investigators funded through these FOAs may request supplemental funding:
This supplemental support should be supported by strong preliminary data generated by the NHIR PD/PI laboratory using the NHIR engineered nanomaterials (ENMs). The research strategy should demonstrate how the new collaboration (with another NHIR PI or non-NHIR collaborator) will enhance or take advantage of novel approaches that may not be possible within the currently funded efforts.
Only a NHIR PD/PI can submit this request; however, new collaborator(s) can be supported through a sub-contract mechanism following NIH administrative supplement submission procedures. Only one administrative supplement can be submitted per NHIR U01/U24 grant.
Recipients of supplemental funds under this announcement will be expected to present findings at the annual NHIR consortium meeting. Funds for travel to consortium meetings should not be included in this supplemental request.
Scope of Support
The objectives of NHIR Consortium are to: produce comprehensive biological response profiles for diverse ENMs using in vitroandin vivo models and relevant routes of exposure to gain understanding on potential molecular, biochemical and pathophysiological alterations at target and secondary organs; and work collaboratively, as appropriate, to integrate efforts and capitalize from other model systems and expertise of NHIR to enrich our knowledge base on ENM-biological interactions.
To promote additional collaborative efforts and to bring additional expertise, cell culture, or animal models that are not currently investigated in the NHIR consortium, the examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
