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.

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.   (continued...)
