Extramural Update

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences has issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement for its Outstanding New Environmental Science (ONES) award, a highly successful program of R01 research grants specifically for new investigators.

The Outstanding New Environmental Science Award is designed to identify outstanding scientists in the early, formative stages of their career who intend to make a long term career commitment to research in the mission area of the NIEHS, but have not yet successfully competed for their first R01 grant support. Applications are sought that propose highly innovative research programs focusing on problems of environmental exposures and human biology, human pathophysiology and human disease.

This is the third year the program has been announced. In the first two years of the program, 15 grant awards were made.

Applications will be accepted for up to $400,000 in direct costs for years 1-2, with up to $275,000 in years 3-5. This includes up to $150,000 per year for equipment or other resource development in years 1-2.

The program is designed to be highly competitive. To encourage universities to identify their best new investigators as potential applicants, only one application per school or college within an institution will be accepted.

Letters of intent for this initiative are due November 13, 2007, with applications due on December 10, 2007.
