NIH Funds Green Chemistry Research
"Green chemistry and engineering for drug discovery, development and production" has been identified by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) as one of the specific challenge topics for the National Institutes of Health's "NIH Challenge Grants in Health and Science Research."
The NIH has designated at least $200 million for the new initiative-part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)-which will support research in selected topic areas. Award grants of up to $1 million each are available to help quickly advance the area in significant ways.
Awards in the green chemistry challenge area are intended for the "development of chemical methodologies and tools to promote green chemistry and engineering innovation into drug discovery, development, and production."
The submission time window for RFAs (request for applications) is March 27 to April 27, 2009, according to Miles Fabian, Ph.D., Program Director of the Division of Pharmacology, Physiology, & Biological Chemistry at the NIGMS.
A complete list of NIGMS Challenge Topics can be found at http://www.ni gms.nih.gov/Research/ChallengeAreas.htm. The green chemistry and engineering topic area is listed as 06-GM-109.
Additional information is available from Dr. Fabian at 301-594-3827 or fabianm**At_Symbol_Here**nigms.nih.gov. The NIH also has a website dedicated to ARRA at http://www.ni h.gov/recovery/index.htm.
