Program Description

NIEHS Grand Opportunity Grant Program (Nano GO)

The NIEHS Nano GO program supports large-scale research projects that accelerate critical breakthroughs, early and applied research on cutting-edge technologies, and new approaches to improve the synergy and interactions among multi- and inter-disciplinary research teams. The major goals of this program are to develop reliable and reproducible assays, methods and models to predict exposure, and biological response to nanomaterials across different systems and laboratories. The coordinated research efforts include diverse routes of exposure to nanomaterials and in vitro and in vivo models of exposure and response.


Nanotechnology Consortiums

NIEHS Centers for Nanotechnology Health Implications Research (NCNHIR) Consortium

The NCNHIR Consortium is an interdisciplinary program consisting of five U19 and three U01 Cooperative Centers along with other active grantees funded through Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety (Nano-EHS) program. The NIEHS also established contractual agreements for nanomaterial characterization and an informational database to support this consortium. The overarching goals of these efforts are to gain fundamental understanding on how the physical and chemical properties of ENMs influence their interactions of ENMs with biological systems and to better understand potential health risks associated with ENM exposure. These findings will also guide safe development and use of nanotechnology.
