The UC Center for Climate, Health and Equity is announcing an open call for research proposals that address a range of priorities at the intersection of climate change and human health.
The center seeks to harness the expertise and leadership of the health sector to drive ambitious climate action that safeguards health and promotes health equity. The Center leads research, education, and policy activities to generate and scale climate-health solutions. This includes preparing health professionals to provide climate-responsive care; expanding the evidence base on the intersection of climate, health, and equity; building sustainable health systems; working with communities to design, implement, and evaluate new approaches to climate adaptation and mitigation that promote health equity; and supporting strong climate and health policies.
The Climate and Health Seed Grant Program was created to support interdisciplinary research projects across the UC system that advance our understanding of the human health impacts of climate change and the climate solutions that advance health equity. Priority will be given to proposals that focus on climate and health equity.
Selected proposals will receive one-time, non-renewable funding of up to $10,000 for faculty and fellows, and up to $5,000 for students, during the period March 2022 – March 2023.
