The NIEHS Outstanding New Environmental Scientist Award is intended to identify outstanding scientists who are in the early, formative stages of their careers and who intend to make a long-term career commitment to research in the environmental health mission areas of the NIEHS and assist them in launching innovative research programs focusing on problems of environmental exposures and human biology, human pathophysiology and human disease. This is a program of R01 research grants intended for first-time R01 applicants.

Eligible principal investigators include individuals with faculty appointments which are tenure track or equivalent and who have fewer than eight years of postdoctoral experience at the time of application. Ineligible individuals include current and former principal investigators on NIH research project (R01), sub-projects of program projects (P01) or center grants with research components (P50) or equivalent research grant awards. Applicants will be expected to devote at least 50% time and effort to the project and have a long-term commitment to research in the environmental health sciences.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, October 7, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include brief descriptions of each of the following: 1) statement of career goals in the environmental health sciences, 2) the specific human disease, dysfunction, pathophysiologic condition, or relevant human biologic process and the specific environmentally relevant toxicant to be studied, and 3) the expected impact on the environmental health sciences in linking the effects of environmental exposures to the cause, mechanisms, moderation, or prevention of a human disease or disorder or relevant pathophysiologic process.

Amount: Up to $400,000 in direct costs in the first two years and up to $275,000 in years 3-5.
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, October 7, 2005 (letter of intent)
