Deadline
July 1, 2015 for January 2016 funding
Description
Awards are designed to support exceptional early-career researchers who have distinguished themselves as promising investigators and are in the beginning stages of establishing successful, independent diabetes research programs; and talented established investigators in fields other than diabetes who are interested in applying their skills and expertise to diabetes research.
Eligibility Awards are available to early-career diabetes investigators proposing innovative and ambitious diabetes-related research programs. Applicants must hold faculty positions and have demonstrated independent productivity in diabetes research. Applicants may currently hold independent NIH funding (K, U or R awards, including an initial R01/U01) but must not have applied for, or received, an R01/U01 renewal or a second R01/U01 award. Candidates must be identified through institutional nomination; applications will be accepted only from individuals with the appropriate institution support.

Deadline
July 1, 2015 for January 2016 funding
Description
Awards are designed to support established, experienced investigators with strong records of outstanding productivity in fields outside of diabetes who are interested in applying their considerable skills and expertise to diabetes research. These awards are highly competitive and intended to support particularly innovative and transformational ideas that have the potential to have an exceptional impact in diabetes.
Eligibility
Applicants must hold independent faculty positions and have demonstrated significant productivity in their current field of research. Applicants cannot have previously received national grant support (NIH, NIDDK, ADA, JDRF, etc.), as either a PI or Co-PI, in diabetes or diabetes-related research.
Support
Awards provide two distinct phases of research support: Phase 1 provides up to three years of support at a maximum of $325,000 per year (including 30% indirect costs), Phase 2 provides up to two years of support at a maximum of $325,000 per year (including 30% indirect costs). Phase 2 is contingent upon demonstration of significant contributions to the field of diabetes research in Phase 1. Combined support for Phase 1 and Phase 2 can total up to $1,625,000.
