  • Andre Elias Nel, University of California, Los Angeles
  • Galya Orr, Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratories, Richland, Wash.
  • Christopher D. Vulpe, University of California, Berkeley
  • Paul K. Westerhoff, Arizona State University, Tempe
  • Frank A. Witzmann and Somenath Mitra, Indiana University, Indianapolis
  • Robert M. Worden, Michigan State University, East Lansing

    The three Recovery Act Nanotechnology NIH Challenge Grants have been awarded to:

    • Kent E. Pinkerton, University of California, Davis
    • Timothy R. Nurkiewicz, West Virginia University, Morgantown
    • Wynne K. Schiffer, Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Morgantown, W.Va.

    The NIEHS also used Recovery Act funds to support efforts under its Superfund Research Program to determine ways to apply nanotechnology to better detect and evaluate effects on human health, and clean up Superfund chemicals in the environment. The Superfund Worker Education Training Program also provided Recovery Act funding targeting health and safety training.
