- The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites applications to characterize the regenerative potential of human beta cells and/or islets in vivo, to identify cellular and molecular components regulating pancreas regeneration in normal and diabetic adults, and to identify mediators and cellular targets with therapeutic potential for enhancing pancreatic regeneration in diabetic patients. It is anticipated that findings will facilitate attempts to slow or reverse tissue damage, and/or enhance recovery of beta cell function in diabetes.
- The NIDDK intends to commit approximately $2,000,000 in FY2006 to support this initiative
- It is anticipated that 4 to 5 new and/or competing continuation grants will be funded in response to this RFA
- Both Investigator-Initiated Research Project Grant (R01) and Exploratory/Development Research Grant (R21) Award mechanisms will be eligible for support under this RFA.
- For profit and non-profit organizations are eligible, including public or private institutions, units of state and local governments, eligible agencies of the federal government, domestic or foreign institutions/organizations, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
- Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH programs.
- Investigators may submit more than one application, provided there is no scientific or budgetary overlap.
- Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 09/2004; http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html).
