Grant Number T32ES007324
Funding Organization National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
Award Funding Period 01 Jul 1999 to 30 Jun 2021
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):  Environmental agents play a significant role in the development of human disease. The identification of such toxicants and understanding their causal role in disease can rapidly be used in risk assessment and management and holds enormous promise in terms of preventive, therapeutic and clinical scenarios. This application requests funds to continue NYU's training Program in Environmental and Molecular Toxicology. Specifically, the investigators request funding to support the stipend and tuition of 6 pre-doctoral trainees annually in the NYU Graduate Program in Environmental Health Sciences. The training will address a broad spectrum of problems in environmental health, from the causative molecular mechanisms of cancer, cardiopulmonary diseases, and other environmentally-related disorders to the development of animal models which may be used for predicting the adverse effects of environmental agents on human health. The major strength of the proposed toxicology training program is the outstanding quality and interdisciplinary diversity of the training faculty, which wll provide the pre-doctoral trainees an excellent opportunity to conduct environmental and molecular toxicology research in laboratories of investigators with outstanding international reputations. The mission of this training program is to development creative and independent research scientists who can address the problems presented by complex exposures to environmental pollutants in combination with the stresses of a rapidly changing physical environment.
