Letter of Intent due on October 23, 2020; Applications due November 23, 2020

To accelerate the movement of research findings to action, NIEHS invites grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to build a Collaborative Center in Children's Environmental Health Research and Translation (CEHRT Center). Centers are charged with developing effective strategies to translate key children's environmental health (CEH) research findings to relevant stakeholders in the community, academia and practice.

The overall goal of this FOA is the creation of a national network of children's environmental health translation centers. Through external collaboration with the children's environmental health community, Centers will protect and improve children's health by developing and testing new scientific questions and public health interventions/strategies with an eye towards translation; and mentoring a pipeline of new investigators interested in translational CEH.

CEHRT centers will serve as leaders in CEH translational research and research methodology development, with a focus on creating actionable steps to move evidence-informed biomedical, behavioral, psychosocial, environmental research findings in children's environmental health to the wider community. The collective collaborative center program will also serve as a national research resource to support response efforts to emerging environmental exposures affecting children.
