To maximize the grants program’s usefulness in protecting workers, NIOSH funds projects that are both scientifically sound and related to program priorities. Prevention is the thrust of the research program, and studies are supported to identify occupational populations at risk, develop methods for measuring exposures to hazards and detecting adverse health effects, determine the prevalence and incidence of occupational hazards, understand the etiology of occupational diseases and injuries, and reduce or eliminate exposures to hazards. Support is provided for both laboratory and field studies involving humans, as well as laboratory studies with various animal models and cell lines. Acute, subchronic, and chronic investigations are supported. Methods development involves measurement instrumentation, analytical techniques, medical monitoring procedures, and statistical designs to improve accuracy and precision of results. Fundamental or basic research may be supported if the applicant describes in the proposal how the research effort has current or potential utility in dealing with an occupational safety or health concern.
The announcements listed below are published in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts. Each announcement specifies the research priorities of interest, the type of grant activity supported, and the information needed to submit a grant application.
