Individual Research Grants (R01)
Superfund Research Program
The Individual Research Project Program is designed to address specific issues that complement the multiproject research Centers, meet high priority research needs of the national Superfund Program or tackle issues of emerging concern. Grants awarded under this mechanism will be for discrete, single projects. Grant applications are solicited and awards made in response to the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
Innovative Bioavailability Assays to Assess the Effectiveness of Contaminated Sediment Remediation (R01)
- RFA-ES-11-005 - html version
This FOA calls for the development of innovative assays of bioavailability that may be used to determine the effectiveness of sediment remediation in reducing risks to humans. By utilizing tools applicable in a remediation scenario, there is an implication that these techniques are useful for more than just initial site assessment or risk characterization. Rather, these tools also target downstream effects that indicate a reduction in risk to humans has been accomplished as a result of the remediation application. The ultimate goals of this FOA are two-fold: first, to develop and introduce new tools to assess whether remediation efforts are protective of human health; and second, to increase use of bioavailability in risk assessment through providing scientifically-valid, practical, and cost-effective tools. These important dates apply to the RFA above:
- Release Date: November 4, 2010
- Letters of Intent Due Date: January 18, 2011
- Application Due Date: February 17, 2011
- Expiration Date: February 18, 2011
