Located in Research Triangle Park in North Carolina, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is one of 27 research institutes and centers that make up the National Institutes of Health. The basic goal of the NIEHS is to discover how the environment affects people in order to promote better lives. The Recently Published Research area is a great place to start, followed by the News Releases section where readers will find shorter perspectives on topics such as lead levels in children's blood. Moving on, the Funding Opportunities tab provides great information for scientists and others looking for substantial funding. The general public and journalists will enjoy the Health & Education area as it features brochures and fact sheets, along with an A to Z listing of major health topics, that are related to or affected by environmental exposures.
