Cooperative Training Partnership in Environmental Health Sciences Research


Tuesday, November 11, 2014, 12:00am - 05:00pm


The mission of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is to protect human health and the environment. The EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) conducts timely, mission-relevant, solution-oriented research based on the principles of integrity, sustainability, and responsiveness to the needs of the Nation.  The research products and outputs are utilized by the EPA to better determine toxicological hazards, define dose-response relationships, estimate human exposure characteristics, and assess potential susceptible or vulnerable populations in support of the Agency’s responsibility to provide risk assessment, policy analysis, regulatory standards for environmental hazards, and contribute to sustainable solutions to the Nation’s greatest environmental concerns. EPA’s ORD seeks applications to enter into cooperative agreements that will provide training opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows on-site at one of the EPA/ORD National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory's (NHEERL) Health Divisions, located at Research Triangle Park and/or Chapel Hill, North Carolina, or Ecology Divisions located at Gulf Breeze, Florida; Corvallis, Oregon; Newport, Oregon; Duluth, Minnesota; Narragansett, Rhode Island; and Grosse Ile, Michigan.

This solicitation provides the opportunity for the submission of applications for projects that may involve human subjects research.  Human subjects research supported by the EPA is governed by EPA Regulation 40 CFR Part 26 (Protection of Human Subjects).  This includes the Common Rule at subpart A and prohibitions and additional protections for pregnant women and fetuses, nursing women, and children at subparts B, C, and D.  Research meeting the regulatory definition of intentional exposure research found in subpart B is prohibited by that subpart in pregnant women, nursing women, and children.  Research meeting the regulatory definition of observational research found in subparts C and D is subject to the additional protections found in those subparts for pregnant women and fetuses (subpart C) and children (subpart D).  All applications must include a Human Subjects Research Statement (HSRS, as described in Section IV.B.6), and if the project involves human subjects research, it will be subject to an additional level of review prior to funding decisions being made as described in Sections V.B and V.C of this solicitation.  Additional information can be found in Section I.A of the full announcement.
