This NOTICE is of a change of receipt date for this program to February

1 of each year.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) uses a

variety of award mechanisms to accomplish its mission of studying the

mechanisms and effects of environmental agents on human health.  Among

these are Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) Center Grants, a program

of core center support (P30).  The objective of this program is to

provide core support for an administrative structure, scientific

leadership, and shared core equipment to groups of productive

scientists with programs in environmental health.  The award allows

these scientists to:  (1) focus research efforts on issues of relevance

to the NIEHS, (2) work in an environment conducive to

inter-disciplinary approaches to such research; (3) serve as a resource

to the NIEHS in providing scientific expertise on critical public

health issues, and (4) engage in community outreach and education

programs dealing with regional environmental health issues.  A program

of smaller Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences (MFBS) core center

grants is also supported focusing on the use of aquatic species as

biological models for environmental health research.  Direct research

support is NOT provided by the grant, except for limited funds for

pilot projects and exploratory research.

The NIEHS currently supports 13 EHS centers and 5 MFBS centers.  The

funding of additional centers is subject to budgetary and other

limitations.  Because of these limitations and the special nature of

the program, it is imperative that potential applicants contact NIEHS

staff to discuss the scope, content, size, and timing of any

applications for this program. In 1993, two extant EHS and one MFBS

center will be competing for funding.


Guidelines for this program, including fiscal limitations, review

criteria, and additional information are available from:
