This report was intended to serve as a readily available source of information on the status and scope of the research grants programs of the NIOSH as a means of stimulating the development of high quality proposals for research on significant occupational safety and health issues. The research and demonstration grants were listed by program area. Program areas and specific subjects included: occupational lung diseases (aerosol deposition, granite dust, silicosis in miners, asbestos (1332214) exposures, byssinosis, phosgene (75445) poisoning, poultry workers, mineral dusts, particle deposition, textile workers, beryllium (7440417) exposure, sulfur- dioxide (7446095) exposures, and fire fighters); musculoskeletal injuries (etiology, lift capacity, back injuries, automation, job stress, vibration, muscle function, trauma disorders from repetitive tasks, and ergonomics); occupational cancers (agricultural workers, agricultural chemicals, dyeing industry, formaldehyde (50000), leukemia in linemen); traumatic injuries (explosive hazards, grain elevator workers); cardiovascular diseases (lead (7439921) burdens, metalworkers); reproductive disorders (pesticides, fertility studies, mutagens, carbon-disulfide (75150), biotransformation, congenital malformations, dinitrotoluene (25321146) and toluenediamine (25376458), solvents, DNA analysis, prenatal carcinogenesis, and secondary infertility); neurotoxic disorders (neuropathology, chronobiology, diketone exposures, peripheral nervous effects, neurophysiology, organophosphorus compounds exposure, cadmium (7440439) exposures); noise induced hearing loss (impulse noise, industrial noise, ear damage, temporary threshold shifts); dermatological conditions (chloracne, skin permeability, leukoderma, epidermal Langerhans cells); psychologic disorders from solvent exposures; respirators; control technology; and other occupational concerns.
