NIEHS awards outstanding new environmental scientists
Date:10/24/2007

Five-year grants totaling $3.5 million will go to seven exceptionally talented and creative investigators in the early stages of their careers, the National Institute of Environmental Health Science (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announced today. The awards are being made under NIEHSs Outstanding New Environmental Sciences (ONES) program.

The ONES program is an important part of our efforts to help establish the careers of creative, talented young scientists and to allow them to apply their talents to the field of environmental health sciences, said Dennis Lang, Ph.D., Interim Director, NIEHS Division of Extramural Research and Training.

The ONES program, in its second year of funding, identifies outstanding scientists who are in the early, formative stages of their careers and who intend to make a long term career commitment to research in the mission areas of the NIEHS. The program assists them in launching an innovative research program focusing on problems of environmental exposures and human biology, human pathophysiology and human disease.

The grantees selected through this very competitive and rigorous review process epitomize the breadth of the NIEHS research program, said J. Patrick Mastin, Ph.D., chief of the NIEHS Cellular, Organ and Systems Pathobiology Branch, which coordinates the ONES program. These scientists are focusing on conditions such as ADHD, early puberty, aging and lung diseases and determining how these conditions relate to specific environmental exposures. Their research will play a pivotal role in helping to develop new prevention and treatment strategies.

The following is a list of the 2007 ONES program awardees:

  • Brent Carter, M.D., University of Iowa, Iowa City, will study the mechanism that causes lung inflammation and fibrosis after exposure to asbestos.

  • Wenbin Deng, Ph,D., University of California, Davis, will use a combi
