This is one of the most accessed IHS pages, so you are not alone!

FIRST THINGS FIRST

The Integrative Health Sciences Facility Core (IHS) is supported by the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center (SWEHSC).  SWEHSC is primarily funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

 

Who and what can be supported by the IHS? 

The IHS consists of a group of scientists with substantial experience in the many areas of translational research.  Their contact information is included throughout this website.  Anyone is welcome to use this website to contact IHS members regarding questions, potential projects, collaborations,...

Some projects may be eligible for financial support from the IHS on a “funds available” basis. 

In general the projects that we financially support must have relevance to human health as impacted by environmental exposures.  A particular focus of IHS is to provide financial support for SWEHSC Pilot Projects and SWEHSC members.  If you would like to request financial assistance for a project, you can contact IHS Co-Directors (information on this page) or you can access an online Project Assistance Form by clicking here.
