Superfund Research Program
This webpage provides information on current and upcoming SRP funding opportunities, as well as basic information for those interested in applying for SRP grants.
Multiproject Center Grants (P42)
Multiproject Center Grants (P42) - This program supports coordinated, multiproject, multi- and transdisciplinary Centers that address the broad, complex health and environmental issues that arise from hazardous waste sites. SRP Center grants support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing the biomedical and environmental science and engineering disciplines. The Center cores also are tasked with administrative (which includes research translation), data management and analysis, community engagement, training, and research support functions. P42 Grant Awards are made in response to the P42 Center Requests for Applications (RFA). Please direct any questions about the P42 Center Program to SRP Health Scientist Administrator Staff.
NIEHS released RFA-ES-20-014 "Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42 Clinical Trial Optional)" on September 2, 2020. Please direct any questions to SRP staff listed on the RFA.
For materials related to RFA-ES-20-014, please see the Multiproject Center Grant RFA and the SRP Multiproject Center Grant Funding Opportunities page. For more information about the P42 Centers, see the Currently Funded Multiproject Research Centers (P42).
The Superfund Research Program (SRP) is holding a webinar on October 1, 2020 to provide information about the new "Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42)" funding opportunity, RFA-ES-20-014. The RFA was released on September 2, 2020, and the application deadline is February 15, 2021. Registration for the webinar is now open.
Individual Research Grants (R01)
Individual Research Grants (R01) - This program is designed to address specific issues that complement the Multiproject Center Grants (P42), 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.
On February 13, 2020, NIH released RFA-ES-20-004 - Optimizing Natural Systems for Remediation: Utilizing Innovative Materials Science Approaches to Enhance Bioremediation (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed). Please go to the Individual Research Grants page for more information and direct questions to Heather Henry at email@example.com or 984-287-3268.
For more information about the R01 grantees, see the Currently Funded Individual Research Grants (R01) page.
Small Business Innovation Research Grants (SBIR R43, R44)
Hazardous Substances Remediation and Site Characterization SBIR Program (R43, R44) - This program supports Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Grants to foster the commercialization of technologies, products, and devices developed by the SRP and others. Application receipt dates are April 5, September 5, and January 5. If interested in applying, please contact Heather Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 984-287-3268.
Occupational Health and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25)
Occupational Health and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25) - The overarching goal of this program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. Grants are awarded to Higher Education Institutions to develop and offer continuing education courses, research experiences, and academic curricula on occupational health and safety management and laboratory practices in the areas of emerging technologies, emerging contaminants, and/or disaster response. Target participants include industrial hygienists, graduate students, postdoctorates, and professionals involved in the research, evaluation, management, and handling of hazardous substances. The Superfund Research Program also expects that such programs will provide a unique educational opportunity to those professionals involved in the training of other personnel for careers in these new industries. These programs are also meant to expand and complement existing educational programs in occupational health and safety and industrial hygiene. Please direct any questions to Danielle Carlin at email@example.com or 984-287-3244.
The most recent RFA was released on April 30, 2020, and the application deadline is August 3, 2020. For more information, see RFA-ES-20-011: Superfund Research Program Occupational Health and Safety Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25). (Note: this is a reissue of RFA-ES-15-014 .)
Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (R13)
Superfund Research Program Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (R13) - SRP supports investigator initiated scientific meetings that advance the field of environmental health science related to the mission of SRP. The SRP participates in PA-16-294: NIH Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (Parent R13 Clinical Trial Not Allowed). SRP broadens the scientific scope of the current NIEHS R13 program to include non-biomedical environmental science topics reflected in the SRP mandates.
For more information, please see NOT-ES-12-006. Application receipt dates are April 12, August 12, and December 12. Instructions for applying may be found on the NIEHS R13/U13 webpage. Please direct any questions to Brittany Trottier at firstname.lastname@example.org or 984-287-3331.
