NIOSH Extramural Research and Training Programs
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: http://www.fic.nih.gov/Programs/Info/Pages/geohealth-faqs.aspx. For more information about this funding opportunity, please contact Dr. Sarah Felknor, Associate Director of Research Integration and Extramural Performance at NIOSH at SFelknor@cdc.gov or 404.498.2350.
State Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance Program (U60)
State Occupational Health and Safety Surveillance Program (U60) supports meritorious applications relevant to NIOSH's occupational health and safety surveillance goals and priorities. Under this funding announcement, NIOSH staff work jointly with awardees in agency partnership roles to assist, guide, or plan work-related OSH surveillance activities. Although specific aims and activities may be shared among awardees and NIOSH, primary roles and responsibilities reside with the awardees. Interested applicants should review PAR-14-275 at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-14-275.html. A new version of the paper PHS 398 application form and instructions (revised 8/2012) must be used. Download the new application form and instructions from http://grants.nih.gov/grants/forms.htm Inquiries may be directed to Captain Steven Inserra, MPH, Scientific Program Official (SInserra@cdc.gov; 404-498.2552).
The NIOSH Extramural Research and Training Program Annual Report of Fiscal Year 2012 has been published.
Two New NIOSH Funding Opportunities Support Conferences and Scientific Meetings
NIOSH Conference and Scientific Meeting Cooperative Agreements support meritorious applications relevant to NIOSH’s mission and program priorities. Under this funding announcement, NIOSH staff work jointly with awardees in agency partnership roles to assist, coordinate, guide, or plan conference or meeting activities. Although specific tasks or activities are shared among awardees and NIOSH, primary roles and responsibilities reside with the awardees. Interested applicants should review PAR-14-229 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-14-229.html). Inquiries may be directed to Captain Steven Inserra, MPH, Scientific Program Official (SInserra@cdc.gov; 404-498.2552).
NIOSH Conference and Scientific Meeting Grants also support meritorious applications relevant to NIOSH’s mission and program priorities. NIOSH staff often attend meetings funded under this announcement. Primary roles and responsibilities reside with the awardees. NIOSH involvement with specific tasks or activities does not reach the level of agency co-sponsorship or a cooperative agreement. Interested applicants should review PAR-14-246 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-14-246.html). Inquiries should be directed to Captain Steven Inserra, MPH, Scientific Program Official (SInserra@cdc.gov; 404-498.2552).
Extramural priority research goals have been identified for the Fiscal Year 2014 – 2016 period. Please see priority areas for the NORA Sector and Cross Sectors.
NIOSH Conference and Scientific Meeting Announcement
In light of budgetary constraints, NIOSH is postponing the publication of a new program announcement for conferences and scientific meetings (R13) to assess future options and plans for supporting these activities. This delay impacts applicants considering the April 12, 2013 receipt date as a new NIOSH R13 announcement will not be available before then.
NIOSH understands the importance of scientific meetings and conferences, and we are taking appropriate steps to keep the extramural community informed. Once our review and evaluation are completed, and a final decision reached, NIOSH will advise applicants as quickly as possible.
NIOSH welcomes the opportunity to answer questions regarding this Notice. For questions or further information, please contact: Captain Steve Inserra, SInserra@cdc.gov or 404.498.2552.
NIOSH invites applications for training programs that address occupational safety and health training needs of miners in the Western United States.
Applicants must address development and delivery of training, provide qualified instructors, evaluate effectiveness and impact, and coordinate with existing training programs, such as those offered by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). Interested applicants can review the funding opportunity announcement. Inquiries may be directed to Maria S Lioce, M.D., Scientific Program Official, at MLioce@cdc.gov or (404) 498-2530.
NIOSH invites applications for a National Center of Excellence for the Prevention of Childhood Agricultural Injury.
The Center is expected to exert a transformative influence on childhood agricultural health and safety across the country. The research, prevention, intervention, outreach, education, translation, and evaluation efforts of the Center should focus on improving the safety and health of children and adolescents who are present where agricultural work occurs. Many youth live and work on farms and many farms are family-based operations. Interested applicants can review the funding opportunity announcement. Inquiries may be directed to Steve Dearwent, Ph.D., Scientific Program Official, at SDearwent@cdc.gov or (404) 498-6382.
