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.

Webinars will be held May 16 and November 14 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET.

Please join us on May 16, 2018 for these exciting presentations about new technologies to reduce exposure to health and safety hazards:

  • “NIOSH’s VEM System – Helmet-CAM: An Innovative Tool for Assessing Workers’ Exposure to Respirable Dust and Other Contaminants” – Andrew Cecala, MBA, Principal Supervisory Mining Engineer, NIOSH
  • “Reducing Logging Fatality and Non-Fatal Trauma Incidence Rates with New Real-Time Operational GNSS-RF Communications, Recommended Safety Procedures, and Education” – Robert Keefe, PhD, Director, University of Idaho Experimental Forest

 

You MUST pre-register via this webpage to attend. NIOSH looks forward to continuing the work on expanding research partnerships for the greatest impact in occupational safety and health.


NIOSH is pleased to share our new publication, National Occupational Research Agenda: Second Decade in Review | 2006–2016, a report of the activities, effectiveness, outcomes, and impacts of a decade of NORA work by NIOSH and our partners. The report outlines the progress and impact made in addressing occupational safety and health research needs over the second decade of NORA. In addition to the main report, the Sector and Cross Sector Program Supplement report provides specific results on the work of each of the ten NORA sectors and twenty-four cross-sector programs, which were developed by NIOSH to support the NORA sector goals.
