RFA-ES-18-007 - Virtual Consortium for Translational/Transdisciplinary Environmental Research (ViCTER) (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)

Issued by

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)

Purpose

The purpose of this Notice is to inform the scientific community that the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) plans to reissue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for RFA-ES-18-007 - Virtual Consortium for Translational/Transdisciplinary Environmental Research (ViCTER) (R01 Clinical Trial Optional). When reissued, this FOA will continue to use the R01 activity code and will continue to have a clinical trial optional.

This Notice informs potential applicants of the future availability of continued opportunities to submit applications beyond the December 2, 2020 expiration of the FOA.

The FOA is expected to be published in Fall 2021 with an expected application due date in Winter 2022 for Fiscal Year 2022 funding.

Details of the planned FOA are provided below.

Research Initiative Details

The Virtual Consortium for Translational/Transdisciplinary Environmental Research (ViCTER) program fosters and promotes early-stage transdisciplinary collaborations and/or translational research efforts among fundamental (technology and mechanism oriented), clinical (patient-oriented), and population-based researchers in the environmental health field. This FOA will use the R01 mechanism and will bring together newly established collaborative teams to investigate potential linkages between human health and one or more environmental stressor(s). The ViCTER program is intended to support innovative high-risk, high-reward cross-disciplinary and/or translational research projects that are more difficult to achieve in a typical R01 application. Collaboration among investigators at different institutions through a virtual consortium arrangement are highly encouraged.
