DRC Pilot and Feasibility Grants: December 4

The Diabetes Research Center (DRC) of the University of Pennsylvania is now accepting applications for support to perform pilot and feasibility studies in diabetes and related endocrine and metabolic disorders.

The application deadline is Monday, December 4, 2017 by 5 p.m.

The Pilot and Feasibility program is intended to support new investigators and established investigators new to diabetes research. Established diabetes investigators pursuing high impact/high risk projects or projects that are a significant departure from their usual work are also eligible for support under the DRC P&F program. Applications are welcome from basic, clinical and translational investigators. 

Grants will be reviewed by the DRC Pilot and Feasibility Review Committee, as well as internal and external reviewers.  Funding level maximum is $50,000.   

For detailed information and instructions, see the Diabetes Research Center website.

Investigators who are currently in the first year of support through this P&F Program may reapply for an additional year of funding. Continuation requests need to be carefully justified and will be considered as competing renewals.
