Career Development Award: Center for Appalachian Research in Environmental Sciences: PFAS Exposure, Adiposity, & Cardiometabolic Disease Risk in Children from Appalachian, KY

Grants and Contracts Details


Via this award I will gain skills and confidence that will allow me to be a fully independent researcher who will ultimately initiate therapeutic and intervention trials for high-risk obese children exposed to pollutants based upon my translational research. Independent funding (K23 then R01) is my ultimate goal. My plan, which I have designed for the career development period of 15 months, takes into account my ongoing progress, my research team which has already been developed, and protected time for K23 development which will be submitted in June 2020. I look forward to my continued professional growth via this career plan and related research progress.
