Proposals due September 4, 2015
CEED is soliciting applications for a special Pilot Project Program focused on linking environmental research to communities affected by that specific environmental problem. This special RFP comes out of discussions about how CEED can more fully address our mission of improving human health, through involvement of our Community Outreach and Engagement Core (COEC) and affected communities in research design and implementation.
The NIEHS Center for Environmental Exposures and Disease (CEED) is based at EOHSI. The mission of CEED is to understand how environmental exposures are integrated with host and environmental factors to influence human diseases; and to use this information to improve human health through education, outreach, and mechanistically based intervention, prevention, and treatment modalities. They encourage interdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to problems in the environmental health sciences, including involvement of the Community Outreach and Engagement Core (COEC). CEED is in its 28th year of funding by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS, P30-ES005022). CEED has a long-standing Pilot Project Program, which supports new environmental health research with the potential to improve human health. For examples of recent pilot projects, see the CEED Pilot Program page.
