Natl. Inst. of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Education Program Grants (R25) Available

Dec 19, 2011

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will support the creation of educational opportunities for undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows in areas of biomedical or behavioral research of particular interest to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) , while fostering the career development of these students and fellows.

The structure of the educational opportunity can include an intensive summer research program, a curriculum-based program or a combination of both experiences.

Inclusion of faculty currently involved in research activities related to the mission of NIDDK will be necessary to provide the highest quality information and to introduce role models and future colleagues into the educational experience.

The NIDDK is especially interested in attracting students and postdoctoral fellows from scientific disciplines underrepresented in disease-oriented biomedical research, such as engineering, informatics, computer science, and computational sciences, to encourage them to apply their expertise to research relevant to diabetes and other endocrine and metabolic diseases; digestive and liver diseases; nutrition; obesity research and prevention; and kidney, urologic and hematologic diseases.

Proposals may be submitted on Jan 25, May 25 or Sep 25 until the end of 2014.
