NIH-funded research network to explore oil spill health effects
Date:7/7/2011

," said Gwen Collman, Ph.D., director of the NIEHS Division of Extramural Research and Training, which will closely monitor the progress of the research components. "A focus will be on the physical and psychological health of vulnerable populations, especially pregnant women, children, fishermen, immigrants, and minorities."

In addition to sharing data and research results, each of the four institutions will implement a community resilience project, which seeks to better understand how local populations respond to and recover from disasters. Through their partnerships with community-based organizations, researchers will assess how culture, social networks, and other determinants may enhance pre-event preparedness and post-event recovery.

"This region has seen its share of disasters, and many communities have shown remarkable resilience," said Claudia Thompson, Ph.D., chief of the Susceptibility and Population Health Branch at NIEHS. "One goal of the research projects is to understand what keeps these communities together, so that other communities can benefit."

The four recipients of the NIH funding are:

Edward Trapido, Sc.D.
Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans
"Women and Their Children's Gulf Health Consortium"

Maureen Lichtveld, M.D.
Tulane University
"Trans-disciplinary Research Consortium for Gulf Resilience on Women's Health"

J. Glenn Morris Jr., M.D.
University of Florida
"Health Impact of Deepwater Horizon Spill in Eastern Gulf Coast Communities

Cornelis Elferink, Ph.D.
The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston
"Gulf Coast Health Alliance: Health Risks Related to the Macondo Spill"
