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 Full member projects that are related to mission of the Center.  CHHE will provide up to $5000/Full 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 (genomics, epigenomics, and transcriptomics; discovery and targeted proteomics; discovery and targeted metabolomics including environmental toxicants; and metallomics).  As of as of 12/1/20 Seed Funds can be used in non-CHHE NC State core facilities (imaging, FACS etc).

To request funds for STC services use the STC Portal for all others submit your request here.  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.  Remember CHHE Full members can pool their Seed Funds for larger collaborative projects. Please direct your questions to Rob Smart, rcsmart@ncsu.edu
