The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Institutional Patient-Oriented Career Development Program in the Environmental Health Sciences (K12) seeks to establish strong, multidisciplinary, institution-based programs that promote the career development and career transition of doctoral-level scientists in multidisciplinary team settings to design and direct projects in patient-oriented environmental health sciences research. This specific K12 initiative is intended to build upon training and career development programs initiated by the NIH Roadmap activities in Re-engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise, and to complement the refocusing of the research efforts of the NIEHS training and research programs to include a greater emphasis on integration of basic and clinical research with a focus on environmental exposures and unique scientific opportunities relevant to the mission of NIEHS.

Programs supported by this initiative will be expected to be characterized by: 1) a core of formal didactic experiences in research methodology for conducting hypothesis-based integrative research and specific courses in environmental health sciences; 2) a base of high quality research in environmental health sciences focusing on a particular aspect of disease etiology, pathogenesis, progression, or epidemiology; 3) a pool of talented early-career, patient-oriented research scholars from a variety of disciplines who plan to pursue careers in the clinical environmental health sciences; and 4) a unifying seminar series or topics course, along with grand round presentations and journal club, which will instill in the clinical scholars an appreciation for integrative research and research approaches to problems of environmental exposures and human biology, human pathophysiology, and human disease.

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, June 22, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include a brief summary project plans for each of the four required areas listed above.


The expected amount for individual awards is from $464,000 to $580,000 for the first year, rising to a range of $883,000 to $1,115,000 when fully implemented. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2007. Individual awards are for a five year period.
