Fwd: [aging_initiativ] Timely Opportunity: EPA Aging List Serve January 24, 2006

Due Date: February 21, 2006
CLASSIFYING OLDER ADULTS BASED ON CRITICAL LIFESTYLE FACTORS THAT MAY AFFECT THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURES

The purpose of the RFA is to encourage the identification of the critical lifestyle factors affecting exposure and activity in older adults living in the United States (US) and to assess whether biomarkers of exposure, activity, and health are available for use in exposure, activity, and physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling. Increase in effort in this area is critical to understanding how chemical and biological stressors affect the aging population, and how these interact with various lifestyle factors, health conditions, and life histories of environmental and occupational exposures that characterize the older adult population. This will enhance public health by reducing uncertainties in risk assessment associated with variability in the human population at large and by providing the scientific basis for health advisories specific to older adults.

Eligible Entities: State, territory and possession, and Tribal nation of the United States, including DC, for public and private State universities and colleges, hospitals, laboratories, State and local government departments and other public or private nonprofit institutions. Universities and educational institutions must be subject to OMB Circular A-21.

Anticipated Amount of Individual Award: $300,000 Due Date: February 21, 2006
