Register

The Superfund Research Program (SRP) is holding a webinar to provide information about the new "Superfund Hazardous Substance Research and Training Program (P42)" funding opportunity, RFA-ES-18-002. The RFA was released on July 3, 2018, and the application deadline is December 19, 2018.

On the webinar, NIEHS staff will provide information and answer questions about the P42 RFA to address the broad, complex health and environmental issues that arise from the multimedia nature of hazardous waste sites. SRP Center grants support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing both the biomedical and environmental science disciplines. The Center cores are tasked with administrative, community engagement, research translation, research support, and training functions.

The webinar will also focus on changes from previous solicitations. For more information about the RFA, see the SRP Funding Opportunities – Multiproject Center Grants page.

Janice Benson Allen, Ph.D., received her undergraduate degree at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill in chemistry/biology and her Ph.D. at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine (NCSU-CVM) in cell biology and biotechnology. Her research area concentrated on the pathogenesis of inflammation, with a focus in in vitro/in vivo models of acute and chronic inflammation, cytokines and growth factors, oxidative stress, and transcriptional factors/regulation of gene expression.

Allen worked at the NIDDK and NIDCR in Bethesda, Md., as an intramural chemist prior to serving as a faculty member at the NCSU-CVM. Allen mentored several undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows while at the NIH and NCSU-CVM. She has been a scientific review officer for NIEHS since 2002. In this position she is responsible for the initial administrative, scientific, and technical review of research grant and fellowship applications and contracts assigned to NIEHS before forwarding them to outside consultants for detailed peer review. She assures that a uniform interpretation of NIH grant/contract policies and procedures is given both to applicants and review consultants, and prepares summary statements of review committee findings and recommendations.
