National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) seeks

to establish several contracts within 30 minutes' commuting distance of

the NIEHS.  The purpose is to provide clinical support services

including access to patient facilities by NIEHS investigators

performing clinical studies on the effect of environmental agents on

human health.  Examples of efforts to be explored under the contracts

include the study of pulmonary pathobiological effects of

environmentally induced asthma, studies of the role of in utero

exposure of environmental estrogens on bone mineral density, and

studies of the role of environmental estrogens on the onset and

progression of puberty in children.  Specific studies will be

identified by Task Orders.  The requirement for geographic proximity

will allow NIEHS investigators to coordinate their research efforts by

physically working at several sites (NIEHS and contractor facilities)

on a frequent basis.  It is anticipated that several awards will be

made.  The estimated period of performance is 10 years.  Release of the

Request for Proposals (RFP) is anticipated on or about September 2,

1992, with proposals due October 20, 1992.  All responsible sources may

submit a proposal that shall be considered by the agency.

Requests must reference RFP NIH-ES-92-34 and must be forwarded to:
