Long-term Exposure to Air Pollution and Development of Cardiovascular Disease
Wednesday, May 18, 2016-- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing to expand and inform the understanding of the mechanism(s) by which air pollution contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease. Specifically, research is needed to estimate the total cardiovascular risk associated with exposure to air pollution, including indicators of early subclinical damage and novel endpoints, in addition to established morbidity and mortality outcomes. Research is also needed to understand related endpoints such as markers of cardio-metabolic responses and cerebrovascular disease. In consideration of the implications of this research and of regulations promoting open access to federally funded data, the Agency is seeking applications that develop innovative methods for broad access to data generated in response to this solicitation. -- (full text)

Grant Opportunity: Agriculture and Food Research Initiative - Water for Agriculture Challenge Area
Thursday, May 05, 2016-- This AFRI Challenge Area addresses critical water resources issues such as drought, excess soil moisture, flooding, quality and others in an agricultural context. Funding will be used to develop management practices, technologies, and tools for farmers, ranchers, forest owners and managers, public decision makers, public and private managers, and citizens to improve water resource quantity and quality. The long-term goal of the AFRI Water for Agriculture Challenge Area is to tackle critical water issues by developing both regional systems for the sustainable use and reuse, flow and management of water, and at the watershed and farm scales, water issues focused on production and environmental sustainability efforts.
