NIEHS Funding Opportunities

NIH Funding Opportunities

  • Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
    Supports innovative approaches to identifying, understanding, and developing strategies for overcoming barriers to the adoption, adaptation, integration, scale-up, and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, tools, policies, and guidelines.
  • NIH Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats (CounterACT) Research Centers of Excellence (U54 – Clinical Trial Optional)
    The mission of the NIH CounterACT program is to support research and development of new therapeutics for chemical threats. Chemical threats are toxic chemicals that could be used in a terrorist attack or accidentally released from industrial production, storage, or shipping. They include traditional chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, pharmaceutical-based agents, pesticides, and others.
  • Understanding and Addressing the Impact of Structural Racism and Discrimination on Minority Health and Health Disparities (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
    NIEHS is interested in observational research examining the role of structural racism and discrimination (SRD) as a significant determinant in environmental health disparities, or evidence-based intervention research that mitigates or prevents the negative health outcomes attributable to environmental SRD. Applicants are strongly encouraged to utilize community engaged research approaches. Areas of specific interest to NIEHS in environmental SRD include, but are not limited to: single or combined environmental exposures (i.e., mixtures) affecting the health of communities; health impacts of climate change, extreme weather and natural or human caused disasters; the built environment and greenspace, including green gentrification; studies grounded in community identified concerns around the intersection of environmental SRD and health outcomes; the impact of environmental SRD on health outcomes across the lifespan; and the role of environmental SRD in occupational exposures.
