NIH | Type 1 Diabetes Pathfinder Award (DP2)

Purpose: The Type 1 Diabetes Pathfinder Award (DP2) was first initiated in 2008 as part of the Strategic Plan for Type 1 Diabetes Research. The goal is to support a small number of early stage investigators of exceptional creativity who propose bold and highly innovative new research approaches that have the potential to produce a major impact on broad, important problems in biomedical and behavioral research relevant to type 1 diabetes and its complications. The Type 1 Diabetes Pathfinder Award initiative complements ongoing efforts by NIH and its Institutes and Centers to fund early stage investigators through R01 grants, which continue to be the major sources of NIH support for early stage investigators. The research proposed need not be in a conventional biomedical or behavioral discipline but must be relevant to type 1 diabetes.

NIH | Understanding the Pathogenesis & Etiology of Tyoe 1 Diabetes Using Biosamples and Subjects from Clincal Studies

Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for studies of type 1 diabetes etiology and pathogenesis using subjects and/or samples from clinical trials and studies. This opportunity is intended to fund collaborative projects using subjects (and/or their samples) who have been phenotypically and genetically characterized for risk of developing type 1 diabetes.

David and Deborah Winston Fellowship in Diabetic Cardiovascular Research

The David and Deborah Winston Fellowship in Diabetic Cardiovascular Research provides funds ($5,000) toward the Washington University stipend for one graduate student each year. Students are eligible if they are carrying out their thesis work in a Diabetic Cardiovascular Disease Center (DCDC) or Diabetes Research Center (DRC)-affiliated laboratory. The recipient student will be selected annually from among applications submitted by DCDC and DRC faculty members. If you wish to nominate one of your students for the 2015 award, please submit the attached application, the student’s curriculum vitae in NIH Biosketch format, and your letter of recommendation as the thesis mentor to Beth Wolf (bethwolf@dom.wustl.edu) by March 24, 2015.
