National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences


This Notice is to remind potential applicants that the receipt date

for applications for the National Institute of Environmental Health

Sciences (NIEHS) Core Center Grants Program is February 1 each year.

NIEHS Core Center Grants provide support for an administrative

structure, scientific leadership, and shared equipment to

multidisciplinary groups of productive scientists with programs in

environmental health.  Direct research support is NOT provided by the

grant, except for limited funds for pilot projects.


The NIEHS currently supports nineteen Environmental Health Sciences

(EHS) and five Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences (MFBS)

Centers.  Because of limitations on the number of centers that can be

supported and the special nature of the program, potential applicants

are strongly urged to contact NIEHS staff to discuss the scope,

content, size, and timing of any applications for this program.

Applications received for the February 1, 1997 receipt date will

compete with two extant EHS Core Centers for funding early in Fiscal

Year 1998.  Applications having a research program focused on

environmentally related health problems of underserved and/or

economically disadvantaged populations are particularly encouraged.




Guidelines for this program, including fiscal limitations, review

criteria, and additional information are available from:
