The Department of Science & Technology, Government of India (GoI), and National Institutes of Health (USA) invite collaborative proposals from ambitious and prospective individuals and organizations for the US-India Collaborative Environmental Health Research Program.
The purpose of the United States (U.S.)-India Program for Environmental Health Collaborative Research is to stimulate and promote collaborative basic, translational, and clinical research between U.S.-based researchers and Indian researchers and to gain a comprehensive understanding of the impacts of environmental insults on children and adults across all organ systems (e.g. pulmonary, cardiovascular, cancer, and neurological disorders).
Applications may include collaborative research projects aimed at addressing the following areas of research relevant to the mission of the NIEHS including, but not limited to:
- Ambient air pollution from different sources and their multi-organ system health effects assessed from fundamental, epidemiological, or clinical research settings
- Epidemiological or clinical studies on children or adults as well as relevant animal models to understand the impact of PM2.5 on pulmonary, cardiovascular, cancer, and neurological systems
- Impact of ambient air pollutants on preexisting disease conditions such as asthma, COPD, cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, obesity, and neurological disorders
- Development, validation, and use of multiple modalities for improved exposure assessment at the community, population, and personal level
- Multi-city epidemiological studies in highly polluted communities including panel studies in children and adults
- Physicochemical characterization of ambient particulates (PM10, PM2.5) from diverse cities and communities representing geographical regions and associated health outcomes.
Application budgets are limited to $200,000 in direct costs per year. Budget costs must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.
