Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42): Purpose. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is announcing the continuation of the Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program [referred to as the Superfund Research Program (SRP)]. SRP grants will support coordinated, multi-project, interdisciplinary research programs to address the mandates legislated under the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986. These mandates include the development of: (1) advanced techniques for the detection, assessment, and evaluation of the effect on human health of hazardous substances; (2) methods to assess the risks to human health presented by hazardous substances; (3) methods and technologies to detect hazardous substances in the environment; and (4) basic biological, chemical, and physical methods to reduce the amount and toxicity of hazardous substances. The objective for the SRP is to develop a holistic research agenda for the protection of human health. This is accomplished by the establishment of interdisciplinary programs that link and integrate biomedical research with related non-biomedical (e.g., engineering, geology, ecology) research within the context of unique scientific themes developed by the applicant. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the NIH P42 multi-project grant mechanism. Applicants must include a minimum of two biomedical projects and two non-biomedical projects. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. The NIEHS intends to commit approximately $11.0 million in FY 2011 to fund four to five SRP grants in response to this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
