FY 2008 Oceans and Human Health Initiative, External Grants Program: This funding opportunity is offered as part of NOAA_s Oceans and Human Health Initiative (OHHI) External Grants Program. The OHHI was established by the Secretary of Commerce pursuant to the Oceans and Human Health Act of 2004 and by the recognition of the Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans (NOAA Administrator) that a national investment in research on oceans and human health would improve understanding of ocean and coastal ecosystems, allow prediction and prevention of ocean and coastal public health problems, and assist in realizing the potential of the oceans to contribute to the development of effective new treatments for human diseases and a greater understanding of human biology. The mission of the OHHI is to improve understanding and management of the ocean, coasts and Great Lakes to enhance benefits to human health and reduce public health risks. Toward that end, as the nation_s lead ocean agency, NOAA_s OHHI investigates the relationship between environmental stressors, coastal condition and human health to maximize health benefits from the oceans, improve the safety of seafood and drinking waters, reduce beach closures, and detect emerging health threats. This funding opportunity is intended to engage the non-federal research community in research across the physical, chemical, biological, medical, public health and social sciences on priority issues for the OHHI. The specific priority areas for this funding opportunity are: 1) Develop methods, tools, and technologies to identify, detect, or predict ocean-related public health risks from pathogens and chemical pollutants; 2) Assess the economic and socio-cultural risk of ocean-related health threats from pathogens or chemical pollutants, and the benefits and value of health early warning systems or related information; 3) Improve the healthful characteristics and minimize ocean-related contamination of seafood through either aquaculture techniques or tools to rapidly identify presence or virulence of toxins (e.g., ciguatera, domoic acid), chemical contaminants (including but not limited to pharmaceuticals and personal care products, flame retardants, current-use pesticides, surfactants and stain repellants), or pathogens. Research proposed under this priority area should engage public health and natural resource managers and decision-makers in order to optimize relevance of the proposed research for the development and delivery useful products and services. Links to ocean observing systems and their enabling regional governance structures or public health surveillance systems are strongly encouraged. The program priorities for this opportunity support NOAA_s mission support goal of: Ecosystems _ To Protect, Restore, and Manage the Use of Coastal and Ocean Resources through an Ecosystem Approach to Management. Other goals are supported, but this is the goal the opportunity most closely addresses.
