Diabetes Grants: January 7
November 13, 2007, Volume 54, No. 12

The Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center (DERC) of the University of Pennsylvania is accepting 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, Suite 700 Clinical Research Building. An original, 10 copies, and an electronic PDF of the complete DERC Application must be submitted. The cover page and application instructions are available on the website: www.med.upenn.edu/idom/derc/pilot.html. 

If human subjects will be participating in the proposed research, it will be necessary to submit an NIH Human Subject form with the application.  If animal research is being proposed, an original of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) protocol form is required.

Grants will be reviewed by the DERC Pilot and Feasibility Review Committee and extramural consultants. Funding level maximum of $50,000; award period: April 1, 2008-March 31, 2009. (Equipment, travel funds, and Investigator Salary are not permitted on this award).

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. 

Application Deadline: January 7, 2008; information, contact Elizabeth Neaves Straw: (215) 898-4365, neavesst@mail.med.upenn.edu or Dr. Bryan Wolf, director Pilot/Feasibility Grant Program, (215) 590-2869,  wolfb@mail.med.upenn.edu.
