This year, the Diabetes Research Center (DRC) will once again be collaborating with the UW Medicine Diabetes Institute (UWMDI) and UW Nutrition and Obesity Research Center (NORC) in a joint Pilot and Feasibility Research Program. The program collectively offers multiple awards of $50,000/year for up to 2 years to promising investigators from any disciplinary background performing research in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, diabetes, and obesity. Proposals may include basic, clinical, translational, or population-based studies that align with one or more of the institutions’ respective research themes. Awards are funded by the NIH (P30 grants DK017047 and DK035816) and the UW.
The joint Pilot and Feasibility Research Program is now accepting applications for 2022 P&F Awards. Please download the 2022 P&F Letter of Intent Form and Reviewer Nomination Form.
