The Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center (DERC) of the University of Pennsylvania requests submission of applications for support to perform pilot and feasibility studies in 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 to submit applications to the Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center, 501 Stemmler Hall, by Friday, January 7, 2005.
If human subjects will be participating in the proposed research, it will be necessary to submit NIH Human Subject forms with the application. If animal research is being proposed, we will need an original and 3 copies of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) protocol forms.
Grants will be reviewed by the Diabetes Research Center's Pilot and Feasibility Review Committee and by extramural consultants. Based on the outstanding evaluation of the recent competitive renewal of the Diabetes Research Center, we anticipate that awards of up to $50,000 will be made (equipment and travel fund requests are not permitted).
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. Notification of an award will be made in April of 2005.
For further information, please contact Dr. Bryan Wolf, director Pilot/Feasibility Grant Program, (215) 898-0025, fax: (215) 573-2266, or e-mail: Betsy Straw at email@example.com.
