Biometry and Risk Estimation_Health Risks from Environmental Exposures

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

To conduct a broad-scale effort in biometry and risk estimation. Most of the research conducted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in statistics, biomathematics, epidemiology, and risk estimation is directed towards estimating probable health risks of cancer, reproductive and neurological effects, and other adverse effects from human exposures to various environmental hazards. The major emphases are placed upon refining existing methods for estimating human risk from data derived from studying laboratory animals and on examining the quantitative issues involved in designing short-term tests and interpreting the data from these tests. NIEHS epidemiology grants support research on the causes of environmentally-induced disease studies focused on the joint role of the environment and genetic factors in determining risk. Our statistics portfolio develops new analytic tools and methods to conduct this work. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program: To expand and improve the SBIR program; to increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal research and development; to increase small business participation in Federal research and development; and to foster and encourage participation of socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns and women-owned small business concerns in technological Innovation. Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program: To stimulate and foster scientific and technological innovation through cooperative research and development carried out between small business concerns and research institutions; to foster technology transfer between small business concerns and research institutions; to increase private sector commercialization of innovations derived from Federal research and development; and to foster and encourage participation of socially and economically disadvantaged small business concerns and women-owned small business concerns in technological innovation. Environmental Health Sciences K-12 Education Program: To improve the understanding of environmental health issues by students; and to expand career awareness in environmental health issues by students; and to expand career awareness in environmental health sciences research and services occupations by developing educational materials for Grades K through 12.
