NIH Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
Limited submissions. Only one application per school or college within a university will be accepted.
Interested University of Iowa applicants must contact their collegiate dean and department head as soon as possible to find out the internal deadline for the college. This is to ensure only one application goes forth in response to this RFA from each college.
The deadline to the NIH January 26, 2021.
The Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Award is intended to identify the most talented Early Stage Investigators (ESIs) who intend to make a long-term commitment to research in the Environmental Health Sciences and assist them in launching an innovative research program focused on understanding the effects of environmental exposure on people’s health. Research projects proposed in response to this FOA will be expected to have a defined impact on the environmental health sciences and be responsive to both the mission of the NIH and, specifically, to the mission of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences NIEHS.
A variety of scientific disciplines, including basic, mechanistic, clinical, epidemiological, computational, engineering, and/or health risk communication approaches, can be used to advance the NIEHS Strategic Plan. Applicants should consult the strategic plan and to ensure that the research proposed in their application addresses the goals and priority areas of the NIEHS.
Examples of environmental agents which are considered of primary interest for NIEHS include but are not limited to: industrial chemicals or manufacturing byproducts, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, fungal, and bacterial or biologically derived toxins. NIEHS is also interested in studies of health disparities and interventions which focus on how these environmental exposures interact with social determinants of health (e.g., age, gender, education, race, and income), both in populations and in individuals.
