      "In FY2017, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) funded 151 extramural awards totaling $91,489,747. Multidisciplinary centers received 36 awards totaling $58,727,991 (64%) in these program areas: $28.0 million for 18 Education and Research Centers; $18.0 million for 11 Centers for Agricultural Safety and Health; $6.3 million for 6 Centers of Excellence for Total Worker Health(R); $5.8 million for 1 National Center for Construction Research and Training. Investigator-initiated and career development research received 45 awards totaling $15,577,086 (17%). Cooperative agreements received 37 awards totaling $10,196,771 (11%). Specialty training programs received 28 awards totaling $5,172,179 (6%), and 5 small business innovation research projects received a total of $1,815,720 (2%). Funding for global health initiatives included a cooperative agreement with the World Health Organization (WHO) to support the Global Plan of Action on Workers' Health, which works to strengthen the abilities of national health systems to respond to the specific health needs of workers. NIOSH continued its long-standing support of global occupational health research and training by cosponsoring the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fogarty International Center Global Environmental and Occupational Health Hubs. This program supports institutions in low- and middle-income countries that serve as regional hubs for joint research and training in responding to high-priority environmental and occupational health threats. In FY2017, NIOSH extramural researchers wrote 557 peer-reviewed articles in 275 journals. Education and Research Centers had the most articles (223) published, followed by investigator-initiated (R01) research (127). These articles appeared most often in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine." - NIOSHTIC-2
