Description:

This funding opportunity is offered as part of NOAA's new Oceans and Human Health Initiative (OHH). The OHH is a competitive suite of programs designed to address the increasingly important role of the oceans on human health. From increased harmful algal blooms to beach closures, from infectious diseases to marine toxins and pathogens, from seafood safety and testing to sentinel species, and from drug discovery to pharmaceuticals, this new initiative is designed to build on the existing work throughout NOAA to enhance NOAA's expertise in the oceans and human health arena through partnerships across NOAA, with other Federal and State agencies, and with academia and the private sector. This funding opportunity is intended to engage the non-federal research community in interdisciplinary research combining the physical science, biological science, medical and public health communities in 1) taking an ecosystems approach to understanding and predicting the pathways through which ocean processes affect human health, or 2) promoting the ecologically sound discovery and use of marine organisms and bioactive agents for human health benefit. A non-federal partner should lead the proposal but participation of a federal scientist on the team is allowed. In order to build a well-integrated OHH program, applicants are encouraged to collaborate with NOAA scientists and other federal and non-federal researchers funded under the OHH or working on OHH-related issues. Building on NOAA's strengths in assessment, prediction, and exploration, research should be structured to provide useful information for public health and natural resource policy and decision-making on issues at the interface of ocean processes and human health outcomes related to NOAA's mission. Proposals funded under this announcement should also include a plan for providing the data collected to an appropriate NOAA entity. Proposals should also include a plan to synthesize, assess, and evaluate, on a regular basis research findings, data collected, and related activities for the OHH as a whole.
