A mission of the CHHE is to stimulate and support research related to environmental health sciences (EHS).   As part of this effort, CHHE will provide seed funds to support CHHE member projects that are related to mission of the Center.  CHHE will provide up to $5000/CHHE member/year (April 1 –March 31) to defray the costs associated with using the Comparative Pathology Core (tissue embedding and processing, immunohistochemical staining etc) and/or the Systems Technologies Core, including  the Genomics (RNAseq etc), Proteomics (targeted and discovery proteomics), and Metabolomics sections (analysis of endogenous and exogenous compounds; metals, xenobiotics etc).  CHHE will also consider providing funds to support EHS research associated with the Integrative Health Sciences Facility and Community Outreach and Engagement Cores.

Submit your request through the “Contact Us” button on the CHHE website menu bar.  Provide a short paragraph describing the environmental health relevance of the project, the core(s) for which you are requesting support, and confirm that you have discussed the project/costs with the leader of the Facility Core you plan to use.  CHHE will review requests and reply with a funding decision within one week. Additional information may be requested to clarify an application. CHHE members will need to complete the CHHEK survey before funds can be approved/released.  Please direct your questions to Rob Smart, rcsmart@ncsu.edu
