Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) Research Training (Collaborative U2R Clinical Trial Optional)
About the Organization:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the nation’s medical research agency — making important discoveries that improve health and save lives. The majority of NIH facilities are located in Bethesda, Maryland and other nearby suburbs of the Washington metropolitan area, with other primary facilities in the Research Triangle Park in North Carolina and smaller satellite facilities located around the United States. The NIH conducts its own scientific research through its Intramural Research Program (IRP) and provides major biomedical research funding to non-NIH research facilities through its Extramural Research Program.
The National Institutes of Health is soliciting applications for research training activities in linked Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth).
The goals of the GEOHealth program are to strengthen environmental and occupational health-related research collaborations, enhance research training, create relevant advanced educational curricula and outreach material; support research needed to identify and design mitigation strategies for the adverse consequences of environmental and occupational exposures, and inform nationally-relevant policy development in LMICs.
Each Hub will provide training and curricular resources to academic institutions in the region. Hubs are expected to have collaborative relationships with ministries of health and other key planning and operating agencies that oversee health-affecting activities, such as agriculture, labor and public works, to serve as a source of scientific evidence for policy formulation related to environmental and occupational health.
The objectives of the “Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) – Collaborative Research Training (U2R Clinical Trial Optional)” are to:
- Develop research training and career development programs for LMIC scientists and health research professionals in a variety of disciplines directly in support of and informed by the research activities supported by the linked research award in order to identify, prevent and mitigate environmental and occupational health risks in LMICs. Training must be targeted toward individuals from LMICs who will pursue responsible academic and/or public health-oriented research positions in environmental and occupational health in their home countries.
- Provide mentored training-related research experiences that are directly relevant to the health priorities of the LMIC and directly relevant to the research activities supported by the linked research award.
- Facilitate the transition of trainees to positions of responsibility, authority, and influence in their home countries, regionally and internationally.
- Strengthen the capacity to conduct independent, sustainable environmental and occupational health research, including implementation and evaluation of practical interventions, at LMIC institutions and directly relevant to the research activities supported by the linked research award.
- Build in-depth scientific expertise in fields such as exposure science and epidemiology, and enhance complementary skills such as data management, scientific communication, implementation research, policy engagement and ethical treatment of human subjects, among others.
- Develop and strengthen regional collaborations, including partnerships among governmental and non-governmental organizations, research institutions, and health service groups.
- Anticipated budget total costs may not exceed $300,000 per year. The U2R application budget should be developed in close coordination with the linked U01 research application because the combined budget for both linked U01 and U2R applications cannot exceed $600,000 in total costs per year (including 8% F&A) and at least 50% of the combined budget must be in the LMIC’s U01 application.
- The scope of the proposed project should determine the project period. The maximum project period is 5 years.
