  • Notice Announcing Use of RFA-ES-16-005 "Mechanism for Time-Sensitive Research Opportunities in Environmental Health Sciences (R21)" for Hurricane Response Research
    The purpose of this Notice is to highlight NIEHS' interest in accepting time-sensitive research applications related to exposures and health outcomes as a consequence of the recent hurricanes of 2017. NIEHS considers Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria to be unpredictable events that provide a limited window of opportunity to collect human biological samples or environmental exposure data, as described in RFA-ES-16-005. Applications should be submitted to RFA-ES-16-005 "Mechanism for Time-Sensitive Research Opportunities in Environmental Health Sciences (R21)". Time-sensitive applications focusing on recent hurricanes will only be accepted on the following receipt dates: November 1, 2017; and December 1, 2017
  • The Natural Hazards Center at University of Colorado Boulder has a Quick Response Grant Program and would like for interested researchers to apply for rapid funding opportunities. Their current Research Counts articles can be found here: https://hazards.colorado.edu/news/research. Please contact Jennifer Tobin if you have any questions or need more information: Jennifer.L.Tobin@Colorado.edu.
  • A recent Washington Post article highlighted the work of the Disaster Research Response (DR2) program: "the Disaster Research Response program at the National Institutes of Health provides a framework for coordinating research on the medical and public health aspects of disasters and other emergencies" (After disaster strikes, science often benefits, by Ashley Yeager, September 16, 2017). 
  • DR2 was the focus of an article in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health:
    Miller A., Yeskey K., Garantziotis S., Arnesen S., Bennett A., O’Fallon L., Thompson C., Reinlib L., Masten S., Remington J., et al. Integrating health research into disaster response: The new NIH disaster research response program. Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health. 2016;13:676 doi: 10.3390/ijerph13070676.
