Environmental Genetics Pilot Grants Available
Published February 2008
The Center for Environmental Genetics (CEG) is now accepting research applications for its Pilot Grants Program. The goal of the program is to support synergistic, innovative and high-risk/high-reward multidisciplinary research projects.
Founded by Daniel Nebert, MD, in 1992, the CEG encourages research collaboration between basic and applied scientists, epidemiologists and clinicians seeking to understand the complex relationships between genetic predisposition to disease and environmental exposures.
The center supports state-of-the-art core facilities and technologies needed to conduct innovative research that focuses on how environmental agents interact with genetic and epigenetic factors to influence disease risk and outcome.
The 2008-09 program incorporates several changes, including application for the use of human subjects or samples through the Integrative Health Sciences Core.
Pilot grant applicants must hold the rank of “research scientist” or higher, but do not need to be a member of the CEG to apply.
Applications must be received by 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 10. The application form is available at eh.uc.edu/ceg or by calling (513) 558-3625.
