NIOSH will support studies examining the interaction between biomechanical, physiological, and psychosocial risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Specific objectives of this initiative include: response of tissue to loading and the pain pathways associated with this relationship, impact of aging on work-related loading, tolerance, psychosocial stress, and their interactions, impact of modem work environments on physical exposures related to musculoskeletal loading and injury, quantitative interactions of epidemiological, biomechanical loading, soft tissue tolerance, and psychosocial factors on pathways of injury leading to the development of prevention strategies, shoulder tissue response to biomechanical loading due to work tasks including repetitive and forceful exertions, and risk factors related to return-to-work and secondary injury. NIOSH i ntends to commit approximately $1 million dollars in FY 2005 to fund 3-5 new grants in respons!
