Two at Yale named outstanding new environmental scientists by NIEHS

New Haven, Conn. -- Two talented young Yale scientists who are pursuing careers in environmental health research have been named recipients of this year's eight Outstanding New Environmental Scientist (ONES) Awards by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

Yale ONES Award recipients are Sven-Eric Jordt, an assistant professor of pharmacology at Yale School of Medicine, and Michelle L. Bell, an assistant professor of environmental health in the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Sciences.

"The ONES Program is designed to provide a strong foundation for outstanding scientists who are in the early, formative stages of their careers," said program director David A. Schwartz, M.D. "These grants will assist the scientists in launching innovative research programs that focus on human disease and the influence of the environment." The grants provide five years of support to early career scientists.

The NIEHS granted a total of for $3.6 million to this year's eight awardees. The program is a key element of the NIEHS 2006 Strategic Plan, a five-year blueprint for identifying and funding promising young scientists engaged in new research initiatives that will address the diseases and environmental exposures that are likely to have the greatest impact on human health.

Each of the awardees will focus on a specific human disease or condition as it relates to a specific environmental exposure, and work to link the effects of these exposures to the cause, moderation or prevention of environmentally-related diseases.

Sven-Eric Jordt's research will focus on the way hazardous environmental irritants interact with chemosensory nerve endings in the
