The Pilot Projects Program (PPP) provide an important benefit to members of the Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) and a mechanism to recruit new scientists into environmental health research. The PPP will support innovative basic, applied, clinical and public health research, with a major emphasis on research into the effects, potential consequences and prevention of environmental exposures on human health. Consequently, the PPP will be the nexus for promoting an expansion of environmental health research at NC State.
The over-arching objective of the PPP is to provide pilot funding to Center members and other NC State investigators to collect preliminary data that will support applications for external funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and other agencies supporting environmental health research. An important goal of the PPP is to increase individual, collaborative and multidisciplinary efforts to enhance and integrate research from animal/cell models to human population levels using cutting-edge technologies and computational approaches across the NC State campus to understand and prevent the adverse impacts of environmental factors on human health and disease.

The NC State University Center for Human Heath and the Environment (CHHE) is announcing its request for applications (RFA) for pilot project proposals for 2015. Applications will be due on June 15th, 2015.
The CHHE anticipates proposals from across the NCSU campus, ECU Brody School of Medicine, and NC Central University. The CHHE aims to enhance and integrate basic and translational research from molecules to cells to animal models to human populations using cutting-edge technologies and computational approaches to understand the impacts of environmental exposures/factors on human health.
