NIEHS awards Recovery Act funds to address bisphenol A research gaps
Date:10/28/2009

tified BPA as a priority area.

The innovative two-year grants provided through the Recovery Act will support human and animal studies that address many of the research gaps identified by expert scientific panels, and provide a better understanding of how this chemical may impact human health.

"We want the new grantees to be able to hit the ground running," said Jerry Heindel, health scientist administrator at the NIEHS who oversees much of the institute's portfolio on BPA. "Having the key players talking to one another as they begin new research efforts will stimulate collaboration, create opportunities to share resources, and encourage researchers to develop reliable and reproducible methods that will allow for a comprehensive assessment of the human health effects of BPA."

In animal studies, there is some evidence linking BPA exposure with infertility, weight gain, behavioral changes, early onset puberty, prostate and mammary gland cancer and diabetes. For the newly funded research, two-year animal and human studies will focus on either developmental exposure or adult chronic exposures to low doses of BPA. Researchers will be looking at a number of health effects including behavior, obesity, diabetes, reproductive disorders, development of prostate, breast and uterine cancer, asthma, cardiovascular diseases and transgenerational or epigenetic effects. The 10 Recovery Act NIH Grand Opportunities grants focusing on BPA research have been awarded to:

Scott M. Belcher, University of Cincinnati Kim Harley and Brenda Eskenazi, University of California, Berkeley B. Paige Lawrence, University of Rochester, N.Y. Gail S. Prins, University of Illinois at Chicago; Shuk-Mei Ho, University of Cincinnati; and Kevin P. White, University of Chicago. Beverly Sharon Rubin and Andrew S.
