Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program
NIH has announced the continuation of the Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42 Clinical Trial Optional) . Awards will support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing both the biomedical and environmental science and engineering disciplines; as well as cores tasked with administrative (which includes research translation), data management and analysis, community engagement, research experience and training coordination, and research support functions. Stony Brook University may submit no more than ONE proposal to the FOA.
Please see below for details. If you are interested in applying, kindly send an email to OPD_OVPR@stonybrook.edu by Tuesday, September 22 , 2020 .
WHAT DOES IT FUND: Applicants are expected to design a research Center that integrates biomedical research (e.g., toxicology, epidemiology, mechanistic studies) with environmental science and engineering (e.g., remediation, geochemical, ecological sciences). The scope of the SRP Centers includes: (1) advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effect on human health of hazardous substances; (2) methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; (3) methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; and (4) basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances.
APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS: No restrictions.
AWARD: Applications may request a budget for direct costs of up to $1.75 million dollars per year for up to 5 years.
SPONSOR DEADLINE: LOI due January 15, 2021. Full application due February 15, 2021.
