Funding opportunities from UW Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center

The UW Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center (DERC) invites applications for Pilot and Feasibility Research Awards to develop new research in the area of diabetes and related metabolic-endocrine disease. New and established investigators may apply for awards of up to $50,000 per year for 1 or 2 years.

Applications also are invited for the new Samuel and Althea Stroum Endowed Graduate Fellowship in Diabetes Research. One award of $20,000 is available for any full-time UW graduate student pursuing diabetes-related research in a Ph.D.-granting program (but not those in M.D., Pharm.D., D.D.S., and J.D. programs).

Letters of intent for both programs are due January 11 and should be submitted to Denis Baskin, derc@u.washington.edu. Full applications are due February 16, and funding begins July 1. Information and application details at DERC
