The American Diabetes Association is accepting applications for its Innovative Basic Science Awards.
Through the annual research program, the association awards grants of up to $115,000 over three years in support of creative and 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; projects that extend existing knowledge into a new area or application; projects that utilize novel technological or cross-disciplinary approaches; and/or projects that may not be sufficiently developed for traditional funding sources (e.g., NIH R01).
Applicant must hold a PhD, MD, PharmD, DO, or DPM 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. 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. (Awards are limited to institutions in the United States and U.S. possessions.)
