World Trade Center Health Program World Trade Center Health Program

NIOSH has funded research projects designed to help answer critical questions about the physical and mental health conditions related to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This research plays a vital role in the health conditions currently covered by the WTC Health Program (see WTC-Related List of Covered Health Conditions) and the Program’s ability to add health conditions to the list. The areas of interest are based on the Program's Research Agenda and include, but are not limited to:

  • biomarkers of exposures or health outcomes;
  • exposure-response relationships;
  • improvements in diagnosis and treatment;
  • patterns of illness (age, gender, etc.);
  • risk factors for disease; and
  • other research studies on WTC-related health conditions or emerging conditions.
