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.

Institute/Center Specific Information
To provide postdoctoral research training to nurse scientists to broaden their scientific backgrounds and extend their potential for research. NINR supports and conducts clinical and basic research and research training on acute and chronic illness across the life span, focusing on health promotion, disease prevention, health disparities, care-giving, management of symptoms, self-management, and care at the end of life. NINR seeks to extend nursing science by integrating the biological and behavioral sciences, applying new technologies to nursing research questions, improving the quality and effectiveness of interventions, and developing nursing research investigators. In so ding, the Institute is helping to address the critical shortage of nursing faculty, which both contributes to, and is affected by, the increasing gap between the supply and demand for nurses in the workforce. Applicants for NINR support may not use the F32 to obtain a Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP). The sponsor must have active funding in the same research area as the applicant during the proposed award period. In addition to the required Termination Notice, A Final Report must be submitted to the NINR.  Stipend is based on experience: $36,996 to $51,036, tuition and fee formula amount, plus annual institutional allowance as described in the NRSA guide announced in the NIH guide for Grants & Contracts annually.
