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 are made in response to the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).

Biogeochemical Interactions Affecting Bioavailability for in situ Remediation of Hazardous Substances (R01)

Contaminants in the environment are affected by complex biological, geological and chemical processes that have implications for both remediation effectiveness as well as exposure risk to humans. By understanding the mechanisms of these complex interactions, we are better equipped to optimize remediation strategies and, therefore, improve science-based decision making for site management, priority-setting, and remedy selection. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support problem-solving research on the mechanisms of biogeochemical interactions affecting bioavailability in the context of in situ remediation of contaminated soil, sediment, surface water, or groundwater. These important dates apply to the RFA above:

  • Release Date: July 24, 2013
  • Letters of Intent Due Date: October 2, 2013
  • Application Due Date: November 1, 2013
  • Expiration Date: November 2, 2013

Informational Webinar

In a September 5, 2013 webinar, NIEHS staff provided an overview of the R01 mechanism.

An archive of this webinar is available on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Clu-in Training & Events Web page  .
