by:

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is the US government's leading agency responsible for conducting studies focused on basic-science, disease-oriented research, global environmental health, clinical research, and multidisciplinary training for researchers.

The NIEHS is constantly working towards reducing the burden brought about by human illness and disability through in-depth comprehension of how environmental factors could influence the development and progression of human diseases.

The NIEHS, in close cooperation with he National Science Foundation (NSF), has recently announced a funding opportunity entitled Centers for Oceans and Human Health (COHH).

The COHH program involves the solicitation of grant proposals that contain techniques to address the problems involving oceans and human health.

The primary purpose of the COHH program is to provide linkages between members of ocean sciences and biomedical communities in the hopes of supporting interdisciplinary studies in areas where thorough understanding of marine processes and ecosystems harbor the potential to reduce public health risks.

With the main of goal of improving the nation's knowledge regarding the impact of the ocean on human health, the NIEHS encourages interested applicants to submit proposals that would address Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) research and marine pollution, such as the effects of chemical toxins, effects of global climate changes to the oceans, et cetera.

The COHH program intends to grant 3-4 awards with an estimated total budget of $4.2 million for the fiscal year 2012.
