Challenge Awards

Challenge awards are a way to generate competition, spur ingenuity, and fund or recognize outstanding projects or ideas.

In Fall 2015, NIEHS issued a new challenge focusing on climate change and health.

NIEHS has issued two previous challenges that are helping to move the fields of toxicology and exposure science forward.

  • My Air, My Health Challenge helped spur the creative development of personal devices that can gather and integrate health and air quality data that can be used to improve overall health.
  • NIEHS - NCATS - UNC DREAM Toxicogenetics Challenge used crowdsourcing to engage the community to gain a better understanding about how a person's individual genetics can influence cytotoxic response to exposure to widely used chemicals.
