National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)

Purpose

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) intends to promote an initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications to support career development programs in diabetes research for pediatric endocrinologists. 

This notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive programs. 

The FOA is expected to be published in the Winter of 2011 with an expected receipt date in the Spring of 2011.

This FOA will utilize the K12 activity code. Details of the planned Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) are provided below.

Research Initiative Details

This Notice encourages investigators with expertise and insights in building and implementing career development programs for pediatric endocrinologists in diabetes research to consider applying for this FOA.  NIDDK previously supported similar career development programs as part of a broader initiative:  Training Programs in Diabetes Research for Pediatric Endocrinologists

To foster development of a diverse and highly trained workforce of pediatric endocrinologists to assume leadership roles related to the Nation’s biomedical and behavioral research efforts in the area of pediatric diabetes, the NIDDK plans to invite applications for the establishment of career development programs in diabetes research for pediatric endocrinologists.  The NIDDK intends to provide support for career development programs in pediatric diabetes at institutions that have environments, mentors and programs that will make them particularly effective in enhancing the number of independent investigators contributing to research in pediatric diabetes.  In combination with existing training grants, these awards will establish multilevel (postdoctoral fellow and junior physician scientist) training and career development programs.  

APPLICATIONS ARE NOT BEING SOLICITED AT THIS TIME.
