NOTICE OF LIMITED COMPETITION REQUEST FOR COMPETING APPLICATIONS: 
COLLABORATIVE CENTERS FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH 

RELEASE DATE:  April 21, 2004

NOTICE: NOT-ES-04-007

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
 (http://www.niehs.nih.gov/)

APPLICATION RECEIPT DATE: June 15, 2004 

The NIEHS is requesting research application supplements from its 
Collaborative Centers for Parkinson’s Disease Environmental Research 
(CCPDER) which were awarded in response to a Request for Applications 
(RFA) ES-02-003,(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-ES-02-003.html) 
Information on the funded centers can be found at 
http://www.niehs.nih.gov/ccpder/projctrs.htm.
The current competition is designed to foster research collaborations 
between centers with the ultimate goal of expanding their research 
capabilities. Each center will be allowed to submit up to two 
applications. Each application is required to involve a substantial and 
meaningful partnership with at least one other Center. This may include 
an expansion or creation of resources or an extension of existing 
research projects. Additional information may be obtained from program 
staff. The NIEHS proposes to fund up to three awards for $200,000 each 
per year total cost. These awards would be for three years. All 
indirect and subcontractual costs between collaborating centers would 
have to be accommodated by the $200,000/year ceiling. No cost 
escalations in Years 2-3 would be allowed. Support is contingent on 
availability of funds and eligibility is restricted to CCPDER 
researchers previously awarded under RFA ES-02-003. 

MECHANISM OF SUPPORT: The administrative funding mechanism for this 
program is a Specialized Center Cooperative Agreement (U54).

REVIEW: Appropriate review groups convened by the NIEHS will evaluate 
the applications for scientific and technical merit.
