NIOSH Extramural Research and Training Programs

The NIOSH extramural research and training programs include diverse portfolios of investigator initiated research, mentored research scientist career development awards, training programs, and small business innovation research projects. Multidisciplinary education and research centers, state surveillance programs, and global occupational health initiatives complement the breadth and depth of extramural research and training at NIOSH.

A description of these portfolios is available along with links to current performance data. Extramural performance data includes a listing of all active awards, extramural funding summary by activity and year, and research funding success rates. A link to the NIH Research Reporting Online Reporting Tools (RePORT) provides access to reports, data and analysis of all NIH research. NIOSH participates in this program and you can search NIOSH funded reports by selecting CDC-NIOSH in the Agency /Institute/Center field on the query page.

The peer review and program management of the NIOSH extramural research and training program portfolios is managed by the scientific program officials in the Office of Extramural Programs (OEP). The OEP also manages the extramural portfolio of cooperative agreements for the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP). This portfolio includes the WTCHP Registry, research projects, and outreach activities. Please see funding opportunities for current grant opportunities at NIOSH.

NIOSH announces joint funding opportunity with the Fogarty International Center for GEOHealth Hubs

NIOSH announces a joint funding opportunity with the Fogarty International Center, in partnership with the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences for two linked Funding Opportunity Announcements for the Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) Program. This announcement was published in the NIH Guide on August 8, 2014.

The overall objective of the GEOHealth program is to support the development of institutions in the Low- or Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) that will serve as regional hubs for collaborative research, data management, training, curriculum and outreach material development, and policy support around high priority local, national, and regional environmental and occupational health threats. Hubs are supported by two coordinated linked awards to 1) a LMIC institution for research and 2) a U.S. institution to coordinate research training. Together all regional hubs supported will form the GEOHealth Network, a platform for coordinated environmental and occupational health research and research training activities.


Associated FAQs area available on FIC's GEOHealth FAQ site at: For more information about this funding opportunity, please contact Dr. Sarah Felknor, Associate Director of Research Integration and Extramural Performance at NIOSH at or 404.498.2350.
