CHHE Fall 2016 Call for Pilot Project Proposals

The NC State University Center for Human Heath and the Environment (CHHE) is announcing a new request for applications (RFA) for pilot project proposals for Fall of 2016. 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, ECU and NCCU.  Pilot project funding to Center members and other NC State, ECU and NCCU investigators is awarded to collect preliminary data that will support applications for external funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), other NIH Institutes and Federal 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 strongly encouraged but not required.  Abstract pre-submission is encouraged but not required to determine if proposal topics are consistent with the mission of the CHHE. Individual awards will range upwards to $25,000 for one year. CHHE anticipates funding up to 6 awards for this round. Applications will be due on October 10th, 2016.  Application and additional information can be found at
