The Chernobyl Tissue Bank - Coordinating Center (U24)

Internal Proposal Deadline: Jan. 3, 2012.
Application Due Date: Feb. 15, 2012.

This National Cancer Institute (NCI) limited competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits the renewal application for the Chernobyl Tissue Bank (CTB) Coordinating Center. The CTB is a collaborative project that is supported by the NCI and other international partners and involves active participation of countries heavily affected by the Chernobyl nuclear accident. The mission of the CTB is to maintain a research resource that supports current and future studies on the biology of thyroid cancer, a major health consequence of the Chernobyl accident. The CTB Coordinating Center is a critical component that serves these goals.

Planning Grants for Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) (P20) RFA-TW-12-001

Internal Proposal Deadline: Jan. 5, 2012.
Application Due Date: March 7, 2012.

The NIH Fogarty International Center (FIC), in collaboration with the NIH National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), invites applications from pairs of institutions (one LMIC institution and one U.S. institution) to conduct exploratory activities and plan for the development or expansion of unique, innovative, and multidisciplinary centers of Global Environmental and Occupational Health Hubs (GEOHealth Hubs). The objectives of this funding opportunity announcement are to (1) support planning and exploratory activities related to the development of world-class international centers for environmental and occupational health, (2) support exploratory activities that strengthen environmental and occupational health research, training, curriculum development and policy support, and (3) enhance the ability of investigators to compete independently for sustained funding in environmental and occupational health in an anticipated full GEOHealth program, with awards in 2014.
