Exposome Research Center has funds for pilot projects

Emory Report | Dec. 16, 2013

Emory's Health and Exposome Research Center is inviting applications for pilot project grants of up to $35,000. The application deadline is Feb. 1.

The center, known as HERCULES (Emory Health and Exposome Research Center: Understanding Lifetime Exposures), has as a major focus to advance the science of the exposome, that is, a measure of the effects of environmental exposures on health.  This HERCULES Pilot Project Program also accepts applications in the general area of environmental health sciences that complement the mission of National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, which funds the center.

These awards are open to all investigators at Emory and Georgia Institute of Technology who are eligible to serve as principal investigators on National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant applications. Grants must focus on the role of the environment in human disease.

Especially encouraged are projects with clinical or population-based relevance; applications from early-career investigators; and collaborative and interdisciplinary projects and also, applications that propose to utilize one or more of the HERCULES cores.

An electronic version of the application should be submitted to: Kristine Dennis.
