Advanced Research Cooperation in Environmental Health Research: The purpose of this initiative is to form a cooperative program that will augment and strengthen the research infrastructure and research capabilities of faculty, students, and fellows at minority institutions by supporting the development of new, and/or the enhancement of ongoing, basic science and translational research that focuses on topics deemed to be of high priority and significance because of their critical importance to environmental health. NIEHS intends to award up to $2 million in FY2006 to fund two to three grants. An applicant may request a project period of up to five years and budget for direct costs up to $700,000 in each year. The mechanism used for these awards is the S11. Eligible organizations include Minority Serving Institutions having a graduate or professional school that confers at least one doctoral degree (M.D., Ph.D., D.D.M., D.D.S., etc); for-profit organizations; non-profit organizations; public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories; units of State government; units of local government; eligible agencies of the Federal government; foreign institutions; domestic institutions and faith-based or community-based organizations. Eligible principal investigators include investigators at the applicant Minority Serving Institution with their primary appointment at the applicant institution and have a strong interest in environmental health sciences. Only one application will be accepted per eligible Minority Serving Institution and the partnering research intensive university may only participate in one application responding to this solicitation.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible agencies of the Federal Government are eligible to apply. Foreign institutions are eligible to apply. Applicant Organization and Investigators For this RFA the applicant organization must be a Minority Serving Institution (MSI). The MSI must have a graduate or professional school that offers at least one doctoral degree (Ph. D., M.D., D.V.M., D.D.S., etc.). The Principal Investigator must have his/her primary appointment at the applicant MSI, and have a strong interest in environmental health sciences. The ARCH application must also include a Research Intensive University (RIU) with significant research support in environmental health sciences with an RIU leader (co-investigator) who has demonstrated interests in environmental health sciences. Applications that include RIU investigators who are current NIEHS grantees are strongly encouraged but not required. Only one application will be accepted per eligible minority serving institution and the partnering research intensive university may only participate in one application responding to this solicitation. MSI and RIU Collaboration The MSI/RIU collaboration must be between an MSI with a strong interest in environmental health sciences and RIU investigators with a significant research base in peer reviewed environmental health sciences-related research support such as R01, P20/30, P42, etc. Environmental health has been defined as "those aspects of human health, including quality of life, that are determined by physical, chemical, biological, social and psychosocial factors in the environment (World Health Organization, 1993)." Thus, collaborations may focus on any component of environmental health science-research as defined by the preceding definition of environmental health. ARCH awards will support research that utilizes state of the art methodologies in the conduct of environmental health sciences research. (See announcement for complete details)
