Currently Funded Time-Sensitive Research Grants (R21)

Superfund Research Program

This funding opportunity supports environmental health research in which an unpredictable event has provided a limited window of opportunity to collect human biological samples or environmental exposure data. The primary motivation of the funding opportunity is to understand the consequences of natural and man-made disasters or emerging environmental public health threats in the U.S. and abroad.
