Funding Opportunity Announcement at NIDDK

Catalyst Award in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases (DP1- Clinical Trial Not Allowed) – please find more information following this link.

National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

Application Receipt Date(s): February 2, 2018, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization. All types of non-AIDS applications allowed for this funding opportunity announcement are due on this date. No late applications will be accepted for this Funding Opportunity Announcement. Applicants are encouraged to apply early to allow adequate time to make any corrections to errors found in the application during the submission process by the due date.

Purpose:  The Catalyst Award in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases (Catalyst-DEMD) is designed to complement NIDDK’s traditional, investigator-initiated grant programs by supporting individual scientists who propose pioneering and possibly transforming studies in DEMD topic areas. Applications should be focused on major scientific challenges, and have the potential to produce an unusually high impact on diseases and conditions that are central to the mission of NIDDK’s Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases. To be considered responsive to this initiative, the proposed research must reflect new and novel scientific directions that are distinct from concepts and approaches being pursued in the investigator’s research program or elsewhere.

Budget:  Up to $500,000 direct costs per year, for up to 5 years of support (NIDDK intends to commit $1,600,000 in FY 2018 to fund two awards)
