Synopsis Diné College has developed a model program for training students in public health research. Diné College believes that Native American students are more likely to develop an interest in prevention research if those interests are nurtured in a culturally supportive atmosphere. The research program is conducted in a culturally supportive atmosphere where each student is encouraged to adopt a strong multi-cultural approach to public health and health research. This 10-week program will help students to develop skills and interests in prevention research and participate firsthand in community-based, ongoing research projects at Diné College and at other institutions on the Navajo Nation and in other Native communities.

Using a Total Environment Framework (Built, Natural, Social Environments) to Assess Life-long Health Effects of Chemical Exposures

 

URL: https://www.epa.gov/research-grants/using-total-environment-framework-built-natural-social-environments-assess-life-long

Open Date: 12/02/2016 – Close Date: 03/02/2017

Summary:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the release of the Using a Total Environment Framework (Built, Natural, Social Environments) to Assess Life-long Health Effects of Chemical Exposures Request for Applications.

Recent research has found that the relationship between chemical pollutants and health effects is influenced by a multitude of external factors. Each person’s response is the combined cumulative result of interactions between different aspects of the environments they inhabit and engage with. Health outcomes are impacted by influences such as chemical and non-chemical stressors, the built, natural and social environments, inherent characteristics and policies or programs. The overall purpose of this RFA is to support research that will improve scientific understanding of these interactions and cumulative effects to better protect and promote human health and the environment.

EPA, through its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Research Grants Program, is seeking applications for research investigating how pollution affects human health in the context of the total environment – built, natural and social. Specifically, interdisciplinary research projects are sought that will develop and test innovative methods to assess causal relationships and interactions between all of the major stressors and factors involved in a person’s life. Due to the complexity of the total environment research challenges, proposals that integrate diverse fields of disciplines are highly recommended.

This RFA is supported by EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research Program, which supports the development of science and tools to help communities make better decisions toward sustaining a healthy society and environment.

Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Black Carbon Webinar Series: Representation at Different Geographical Scales

Friday, Dec. 9, 2016
12 p.m. EST

Register for the webinar (Registration is FREE!)

Black carbon is the sooty material emitted from combustion processes, and it can affect human health and the climate. Its role in the atmosphere is broad and complex. In 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program awarded ten grants to universities and organizations to address Black Carbon’s Role in Global to Local Scale Climate and Air Quality. Grantees focused on various black carbon research issues, such as better accounting for emissions and uncertainty, tracking how black carbon “ages” or reacts in the atmosphere, and better representing its ability to impact cloud droplet formation.? Highlights from the research findings will be summarized in this webinar series.

Please feel free to forward this announcement!

Featured Speakers

The inclusion of better descriptions of black carbon (e.g. including brown carbon) will improve model predictions of both concentration and absorption. These researchers worked to improve black carbon representation in global, regional and point-level models.

  • Jesse Kroll and Collette Heald, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
    Investigating the Effects of Atmospheric Aging on the Radiative Properties and Climate Impacts of Black Carbon Aerosol
  • Scott Spak, University of Iowa
    Constraining Urban-To-Global Scale Estimates of Black Carbon Distributions, Sources, Regional Climate Impacts, and Co-Benefit Metrics with Advanced Coupled Dynamic – Chemical Transport Adjoint Models
  • James Schauer, University of Wisconsin-Madison
    Development of a Quantitative Accounting Framework for Black Carbon and Brown Carbon from Emissions Inventory to Impacts
