Children's Environmental Health Supplements
As part of its mission, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) has developed a cadre of children's studies with well characterized exposures during windows of susceptibility from in utero to adolescence. However, many of these studies have insufficient resources to examine in depth, potential gene environment interactions. It is critical to learn more about the connection between genetics and environment and how it influences human health so scientists can begin to develop new strategies to prevent or treat many childhood diseases or disorders.
Supplemental funding to current NIEHS-funded research projects will allow for new interactive collaborations between clinical or epidemiological researchers and researchers with demonstrated expertise in the design and analysis of high dimensional molecular data sets such as genetic, epigenetic, proteomic, or microbiome experts to add or enhance molecular approaches to the existing research strategy of the project.
