The grant’s annual ~$1.25 million funding (direct costs) will be supplemented with $1 million in university funding over the five-year cycle and will help to implement CEED’s vision to pursue precision environmental health research through the integration of clinical, basic and population-based studies. CEED will leverage its extensive experience and expertise with new capabilities in exposure biology, epigenomics and microbiomics. 

Funding will support such specific uses as enhancing technology and laboratories; providing training, mentoring and career development opportunities to junior and established investigators or clinicians entering environmental health research; supporting innovative research and emerging science through pilot grants; developing research and engagement programs that address community health needs; and presenting research findings to stakeholders, including local, state and federal government agencies to provide guidance on mitigation of risk.
