Diabetes Research and Training Center offers research funding

School of Medicine and Hilltop Campus faculty who research diabetes and endocrinology may apply for funding through the Diabetes Research and Training Center (DRTC) at the School of Medicine.

Applicants from the basic sciences, epidemiological and behavioral science departments are particularly encouraged to apply for the funding, which begins Dec. 1.

Generally, the two-year grants will range from $20,000-$50,000 every year.

The DRTC pilot and feasibility program fosters projects required to develop preliminary data that may lead to independent research supported by the National Institutes of Health, which awards three to four such projects to the University each year.

Letters of intent must be submitted to the DRTC by June 13; the proposal deadline is Aug. 15. Both letters and proposals should be sent to Vicky Nordike at Campus Box 8127.

For more information or to receive application forms, call 362-8290.
