SRP Funding Opportunities Webinar
Sponsored by: NIEHS Superfund Research Program
The Superfund Research Program (SRP) is holding a webinar to provide information about the new "Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42)" funding opportunity, RFA-ES-23-001. The new RFA was released on April 17, 2023, and the application deadline is October 2, 2023.
On the webinar, NIEHS staff will provide information and answer questions about the P42 request for application (RFA) to address the broad, complex health and environmental issues that arise from the multimedia nature of hazardous waste sites. SRP Center grants support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing both the biomedical and environmental science disciplines. The Center cores are tasked with administrative, community engagement, research translation, research support, and training functions.
The webinar will also focus on changes from previous solicitations. For more information about the RFA, see the SRP Funding Opportunities for Multiproject Center Grants page.
Please note that the slides available for download were revised after the live session on May 15, 2023.
