Announcement: Request for CURES Pilot Project Proposals

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences P30 ES020957 “Center for Urban Responses to Environmental Stressors (CURES)” announces its 2018 request for pilot project proposals.

CURES is a cross-campus, community-centered initiative that has been established to develop the leadership and research capacity to identify, evaluate, and mitigate Detroit’s environmental health challenges in close collaboration with the community and environmental policy makers.

This RFA seeks applications for research projects that address environmental health problems of concern to the community. The themes for this year’s program are (1) Air pollution, (2) Water quality, and (3) Combined effects of environmental stressors on health. Applications that address these themes are especially encouraged, although applications in other areas will also be considered.

CURES plans to fund up to 5 pilot projects, with each project funded for ~1.6 years at a total amount of up to $65,000 in direct costs.

Any CURES member is eligible to apply for pilot project funding. In addition, any non-CURES member who declares his/her willingness to join CURES and abide by its policies is eligible to apply.

Informational meetings for this RFA will be held on:

Wednesday, May 2, 10:00 – 11:00 AM: WSU School of Medicine, Mazurek Educational Commons, 320 E. Canfield, Room 241.
