Biological Response Indicators of Environmental Stress Centers (U54): -These Centers represent one part of a comprehensive program that develops and refines panels of biomarkers and biosensors of biological response to environmental stressors. By measuring the cellular, molecular and physiologic responses to environmental stressors in key physiologic and pathophysiologic pathways, the relationships between genetic and non-genetic factors that contribute to disease will be better defined. This program will focus on a product-driven approach for the development, confirmation, and application of innovative biomarkers and biosensors, especially those with potential for scale-up for use in large population studies. -The total amount of funding to be committed to this program is $18 million (total costs) over 4 years. Each year $4.5 million will be awarded. -Anticipated number of awards: 4

Additional Information on Eligibility
Foreign institutions are eligible to apply. Eligible agencies of the Federal Government can apply. Faith-based or community-based organizations can apply. In order to be considered for peer review and funding, the U54 Centers must have a minimum of three highly meritorious research projects, must include an Administrative Core, and can have one or more highly meritorious facility cores that meet the general description laid out in Section I, General Characteristics of a U54 Exposure Biology Center. The applicant must name a Center Director who commits a minimum of 10% to Center leadership and administration. At least one research project must include research involving human specimens. Milestones All applications must include a specific section labeled Milestones for each year. Milestones should be annual, well-described, quantitative, and scientifically justified and not simply a restatement of the specific aims. Rather, the milestones should offer a timeline and a pathway for the development of the proposed technology. These milestones will be used to judge the success of the proposed research on an individual-project basis. It is expected that the milestones will be adjusted annually at the award anniversary dates to incorporate the group's scientific accomplishments and progress and to reflect any recommendations of the Steering and Advisory Committees. Meetings The Exposure Biology Program investigators will be expected to attend Steering Committee meetings two times per year and participate in monthly conference calls to discuss their research progress. Funds to support travel of the key investigators to attend these meetings should be included in the application budget.
