The American Diabetes Association is accepting applications for its Innovative Basic Science Awards.
Through this annual research program, the association awards grants of up to $115,000 over three years in support of innovative projects that hold significant promise for advancing the prevention, cure, or treatment of diabetes. Priority is given to high-risk projects with the potential to generate high-impact results; that extend existing knowledge into a new area or application and that utilize novel technological or cross-disciplinary approaches; and/or that may not be sufficiently developed for traditional funding sources (e.g., NIH R01).
Applicant must hold a Ph.D., M.D., Pharm.D., D.O. or D.P.M. degree or, for other health professionals, the equivalent doctoral-level health- or science-related degree and possess the necessary skills and training to carry out the proposed work. Awards are limited to institutions within the United States and U.S. possessions. At the time of application, applicants must hold a full-time independent faculty position or the equivalent at a university-affiliated research institution or other nonprofit research institution.
