Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Innovative Technologies for Research on Climate Change and Human Health

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS), in partnership with other NIH Institutes, is leading an NIH-wide Climate Change and Health Initiative (CCHI) with the goals of: reducing the health threats posed by climate change across the lifespan; improving the health of people who are disproportionately affected by climate change impacts; and building health resilience among individuals, communities, and nations around the world. As a part of this CCHI, this NOSI encourages Phase I (R43), Direct to Phase II (R44), Fast-track (R44) and SBIR and STTR Phase I (R41) and Phase II (R42) grant applications from SBCs to develop commercializable tools, resources, and approaches to capture the effects of climate change and the associated impacts of extreme weather events on human health, and to support adaptation or mitigation strategies to minimize health hazards and impacts from climate change. Technologies may include new approaches for detecting climate change-associated exposures, including temperature and air quality, training tools on climate change and mitigation strategies for patients with underlying health conditions, intervention approaches for reducing contaminants water or in indoor air, modeling and prediction tools for climate-change-related weather events and related health effects, and technologies for delivery of health care, including mental health services to communities during extreme weather events.

This NOSI applies to due dates on or after April 5, 2024, and subsequent receipt dates through April 5, 2025.
