CEED, in collaboration with EOHSI, is soliciting applications for its 2014 Pilot Project Program. Pilot funding supports new environmental health research with the potential to improve human health.
* The deadline for submitting proposals has been extended to Monday, June 16, 2014.*
The mission of CEED is to understand how environmental exposures are integrated with host and environmental factors to influence human diseases, and to use this information to improve human health through education, outreach, and mechanistically based intervention, prevention, and treatment modalities.
This year’s RFA encourages interdisciplinary approaches to environmental health sciences. A maximum of $25,000 will be available for each grant; however, budgetary justification will be a significant component in reviewing these grants. The program is open to all Rutgers faculty members, with special consideration given to new faculty members. Membership in the NIEHS Center or in EOHSI is not required, however, collaborative projects with CEED/EOHSI members are strongly encouraged.
