LETTER OF INTENT DEADLINE: January 22, 2021 @ 5p to firstname.lastname@example.org
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: March 22, 2021 (online)
A primary research-related activity of the Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases (CDMD)’s Pilot and Feasibility (P&F) program is to foster the development of new diabetes-related investigators and provide seed-support for innovative, high-risk projects.
The CDMD P&F program has two different grant mechanisms:
- Full P&F Grants: This mechanism will fund up to $50,000.
- Core P&F Grants: This mechanism will fund up to $5,000 for IDRC core usage. These “core bucks” will allow both new and established investigators to obtain key preliminary data for a developing area of diabetes-related research.
This funding opportunity announcement invites applications from investigators at Indiana University School of Medicine and other Indiana University campuses (IU Bloomington, IU Muncie, etc.), Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), Purdue University, University of Notre Dame and the Indiana Biomedical Research Institute (IBRI).
The program is directed at:
Category 1: New investigators without current or past NIH research support as a PD/PI with any current or past support from other sources being modest
Category 2: Established investigators with no previous work in diabetes who wish to apply their expertise to a problem in diabetes research
Category 3: Established investigators in diabetes who propose testing innovative ideas that represent clear departure from ongoing research interests
Category 4: Investigators developing new research techniques/technologies that could be used in an IDRC Core facility
Note that all categories, including Category 4, can apply for either a full or a core P&F grant.
For 2021, the program has two special invitations:
- Alzheimer’s-Focused Full P&F Grants
This mechanism invites applications focused on diabetes and metabolic disease aspects of Alzheimer’s disease and its related dementias (AD/ADRD)–frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementia, vascular cognitive impairment with dementia, and multiple etiology dementias.
Physician-Scientist Full P&F Grants This mechanism invites applications from exceptional emerging physician-scientists holding an MD (or equivalent) or MD/PhD with a patient-oriented clinical research project, who are early in their clinical research careers and show great promise to develop into future independent investigators.
Awards may not exceed $50,000 for a Full P&F Grant, or $5,000 for a Core P&F Grant.
