Superfund Research Program
The Superfund Research Program (SRP) is a network of university grants that are designed to seek solutions to the complex health and environmental issues associated with the nation's hazardous waste sites. The research conducted by the SRP is a coordinated effort with the Environmental Protection Agency, which is the federal entity charged with cleaning up the worst hazardous waste sites in the country.
The SRP is federally funded and administered by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, an institute of the National Institutes of Health
Request for Proposals: Disease Prevention Research
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Disease Prevention (ODP) is asking for proposals for projects that address evidence gaps in current disease prevention research and target special population groups where additional investigations on health disparities are needed. Funding is available for extramural grants, intramural projects, and conference co-funding requests. Priority will be given to projects that have the potential to address priority areas across multiple NIH Institutes and Centers.
If interested, you are strongly encouraged to discuss potential co-funding opportunities with ODP by contacting Barry Portnoy, Ph.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-402-4337. For a list of 2012 co-funded projects, visit the ODP website .
