Dear Colleagues: I would like to bring to your attention three new funding
opportunities for NIH grants. The first has a $2M per year special NIEHS
set-aside budget and the second and third will receive special emphasis area
priority considerations (selection for discretionary funding) at the NIEHS.
These have the potential to provide funding for R21 (exploratory) or R01(
individual full project) grants that address the priority areas described.
For further information, on the first one, contact Mike McClure, Jerry
Heindel, Pat Mastin or Cindy Lawler at the NIEHS, for the second one, the
cited individuals at NIEHS (me), NIA (Frank Bellino), NCI (Suresh Mohla) or
NIDDK (Christopher Mullins) and for the third one, Pat Mastin at NIEHS.

PAR-02-105-RELEASE DATE: May 2, 2002 --Full Announcement is at:

Letter of Intent Receipt Dates: July 10, 2002, 2003, 2004---Application
Receipt Dates: August 12, 2002, 2003, 2004 --This Program Announcement
expires on August 13, 2004, unless reissued.---Sponsor: National Institute
of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)

Areas: Cardiovascular-Pulmonary; Neurodevelopmental;
Purpose: This program announcement offers up to $2M per year (dedicated
set-aside funds) and an annual Special Emphasis Panel review by the NIH
Center for Scientific Review. This program is to stimulate research in an
important and emerging area of developmental toxicology: the effect of in
utero exposures that cause permanent functional changes that are not
overtly, grossly teratogenic and that result in increased susceptibility to
disease/dysfunction later in the life span.


April 3, 2002
PA NUMBER:  PA-02-093---EXPIRATION DATE:  June 1, 2004, unless reissued
National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)

PURPOSE: The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
invites applications to study environmental agents that cause cardiovascular
malformations (CVMs). The Program seeks to stimulate research to
characterize environmental agents that cause alterations in the development
of the cardiovascular system and thereby lead to cardiovascular
malformations, and to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms
involved in the development of these malformations. The use of mammalian and
non-mammalian animal models, including transgenic and gene knock-out animal
models, and of state-of-the-art molecular biology techniques such as
genomics and proteomics is encouraged, as well as collaborations between
environmental health scientists and developmental biologists, to develop
research programs to address the high rate of cardiovascular malformations
DATE: June 25, 2002- -----NUMBER: PA-02-116---EXPIRATION DATE: July 15,
2005, unless reissued.  Full anouncement is at:

Sponsors: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
(NIEHS),National Institute on Aging (NIA), National Cancer Institute (NCI)
and National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)

Purpose: The sponsors invite applications for research projects addressing
biologic mechanisms that underlie the initiation and progression of prostate
growth processes in middle-age that have pathophysiologic connections with
the prostate diseases prevalent in older men, such as benign prostatic
hypertrophy (BPH) and prostate cancer.
