Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) Research (U01)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for research projects in linked Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth).

The overall objective of the GEOHealth program is to support the development of institutions

in the Low- or Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) that will serve as regional hubs for collaborative research, data management, training, curriculum and outreach material development, and policy support around high priority local, national, and regional environmental and occupational health threats.

Hubs are supported by two coordinated linked awards to 1) a LMIC institution for research and 2) a U. S. institution to coordinate research training.

Together all regional hubs supported will form the GEOHealth Network, a platform for coordinated environmental and occupational health research and research training activities.

An application submitted in response to this FOA for research projects must be harmonized with a linked application for related research training under RFA-TW-14-002 Hubs of Interdisciplinary Research and Training in Global Environmental and Occupational Health (GEOHealth) Research Training.

This FOA is intended to support research that can only be conducted primarily in and/or by scientists of LMIC institutions.
