Institute/Center Specific Information

Training opportunities supported under this announcement by the NIEHS are expected to focus on the environmental health sciences and be responsive to the mission of the NIEHS, which is to reduce the burden of human illness and dysfunction from environmental causes by understanding how environmental factors, individual susceptibility and age interrelate in the disease process.

Fellowship proposals should examine/address how an environmentally relevant toxicant or exposure is, or might be, involved in a human health endpoint such as a specific human disease, dysfunction, pathophysiologic condition, or relevant disease process.  Examples of environmentally relevant toxicants include industrial chemicals or manufacturing byproducts, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, and fungal/bacterial or biologically derived toxins. Agents considered non-responsive to this announcement include, but are not limited to:  alcohol, drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, chemotherapeutic agents, radiation which is not a result of an ambient environmental exposure, and infectious or parasitic agents, except when agents are disease co-factors to an environmental toxicant exposure to produce the biological effect.

Fellowship proposals may include research in the Environmental Public Health field in which communities which are exposed to environmental exposures or have concerns about environmentally related diseases are actively engaged in all stages of research, dissemination and evaluation.  Examples of proposals in the Environmental Public Health field include investigating the health effects / impacts of environmental exposures that disproportionately burden low income or minority communities, investigating emerging environmental threats to communities, investigating exposure-related diseases that are of great concern to a community, and research and evaluation methodology to improve the theories and implementation strategies for working with communities to address their environmental health concerns. Fellows would learn how to conduct research using community based participatory methods, create outreach and education programs and translate research finding to a vast array of stakeholders.
