Grants in Diabetes: January 16
Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center is soliciting applications
for pilot and feasibility study grants investigating diabetes
and related endocrine and metabolic disorders. Young investigators
who are starting their laboratories, or established investigators
who wish to take a new direction to their studies, are encouraged
The Pilot and Feasibility Program provides
modest research support for a limited time to 1) provide initial
support for new investigators; 2) allow exploration of possible
innovative new leads or new directions for established investigators
in diabetes and 3) stimulate investigators from other areas to lend
their expertise to research in this area.
that awards of up to $50,000 will be made (equipment and
travel fund requests are not permitted) and will be funded
for one year. Grants will be reviewed by the Diabetes Research
Center's Pilot and Feasibility Review Committee and by extramural
consultants. Notification of awards will be made in April
of 2004. Investigators who are currently in the 01 year of
support through this Pilot and Feasibility Program may reapply
for an additional year of funding. Such continuation requests
need to be carefully justified, however, and will be considered
as a competing renewal application.
Complete eligibility requirements, guidelines
and application form are available on the Penn Diabetes Center's
website at www.med.upenn.edu/pdc.
Please submit an original application along with 12 copies to the
Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center, 501 Stemmler Hall, by Friday,
January 16, 2004.
