Diabetes Research and Training Center provides grant funding

The Diabetes Research and Training Center in the School of Medicine is offering grant funding to faculty members who conduct research in diabetes and endocrinology.

Applicants from the basic sciences, epidemiological and behavioral science departments are especially encouraged to apply.

Researchers at the Hilltop Campus are also eligible to apply for funding, which will begin Dec. 1.

The grants range from $20,000 to $50,000 annually and run for a two-year period, based on an approved progress report.

The center’s pilot and feasibility program fosters projects required to develop preliminary data, which could lead to independent research supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Applicants must submit letters of intent to the Diabetes Research and Training Center by June 10; proposals are due Aug. 12. Both should be sent to Sherry Ellis at Campus Box 8127.
