2015 Pilot Project Announcement – Request for Applications
The 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.
The overarching objective of the Center for Human Health and the Environment’s Pilot Project Program (PPP) is to expand environmental health science research at NC State. Pilot project funding is awarded to collect preliminary data that will support applications for external funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and other environmental health agencies. Consequently, the major emphasis of the PPP is on research into the effects, potential consequences and prevention of environmental exposures on human health. The PPP will support high quality basic, applied, clinical and public health research. The PPP will provide funding for individual, collaborative and multidisciplinary research aimed at understanding the adverse impacts of environmental factors on human health and disease. Multidisciplinary collaborations and use of CHHE’s core facilities are encouraged but not required.
Individual awards will range upwards to $25,000 for one year.
