To be eligible for an EHS CC award, the applicant institution must demonstrate that they have a minimum of six active NIEHS-supported research awards from four distinct PDs/PIs who are members of the proposed Center. At the time of submission of an application, the qualifying awards must have at least 1 full active year remaining.
Acceptable support includes R00, R01, R03, R21, R24, R33, R35, R43, R44, P01, P42, P50, U01, U19, U24, U2C, UG3 and or Research Career Development Awards (K-grants). Multi-component (e.g. P01, P50, or U19) awards only count as one qualifying research project (i.e., sub-components are not separately counted).
T-awards, U45, and Conference awards (R13, U13) do not count towards this requirement. Furthermore, grants and cooperative agreements in extension periods, either with or without additional funds, as well as supplements of any kind, do not count toward this requirement.
