Research Program and Funding Opportunities

Global Environmental Health

A better understanding of how climate change will alter human health risks and who is most vulnerable to those health risks is essential for preventing climate-related morbidity and mortality. The NIEHS led an ad hoc interagency working group in developing a white paper in 2009 that outlines research needs for eleven categories of consequences of climate change for human health, including asthma and respiratory disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease and stroke, foodborne diseases and nutrition, human developmental effects, mental health and stress-related disorders, neurological diseases, vectorborne and zoonotic diseases, waterborne diseases, and weather-related morbidity and mortality. This report is available online: A Human Health Perspective on Climate Change (Full Report)(4MB).

NIEHS supports a variety of human health and climate change related research, both internally and through grant programs.

Current NIEHS Funding Opportunities

Currently there are no solicited funding opportunities available.

The NIEHS welcomes submissions of investigator-initiated grants on climate change and health through the unsolicited research grant process (e.g., R01s).
