Symposium Features Pilot Research Grants in Occupational Health and Safety

Cincinnati--The University of Cincinnati (UC) Education and Research Center announces the Second Annual Symposium featuring the Pilot Research Project grant recipients. The UC Pilot Research Grants are funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). As one of the 15 Education and Research Centers funded by NIOSH, UC established a program to support pilot research training projects, to increase the research capacity of research trainees and young investigators of occupational health and safety, and to encourage those in related disciplines to pursue occupational health and safety research. The UC Pilot Research Project Program is headed by Professor Amit Bhattacharya, PhD, Department of Environmental Health.

This year's symposium is scheduled to take place at the UC Kehoe Auditorium (located in the Kettering Laboratory Building) on the East Campus on Oct. 11 and 12. Free and open to the public, this symposium will include the research results from recipients of the UC Pilot Research Training Grants for the past two years.

The UC Education and Research Center includes Occupational Health and Safety graduate education and research programs in the UC Colleges of Medicine, Nursing and Engineering, and is directed by Scott Clark, PhD, professor, Department of Environmental Health. Applicants from UC, Purdue University, University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University were considered for these pilot research training grants. The UC Pilot Research Project recently added Central State University, Eastern Kentucky University, Kentucky State University and Murray State University for future grant application consideration. One hour of American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) credit can be given to symposium attendees. For more information or to register for this symposium, please contact Karen Brackemyre, Education and Research Center coordinator at (513) 558-5710.
