- The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites applications to support the secondary analysis of existing data sets relevant to diabetes and endocrine and metabolic diseases; digestive diseases and nutrition, including obesity and eating disorders; and kidney, urological, and hematological diseases. A major subject of this announcement is the support of research on overweight and obesity. The goal of this NIDDK program is to facilitate performance of short term projects that explore innovative approaches that are not readily supported by other funding mechanisms and that can be conducted using existing data sets.
- Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.
- This PA will use the NIH exploratory/development (R21) award mechanism. The applicant may request a project period of up to 2 years with a combined budget for direct costs of up $275,000 for the 2-year period. For example, the applicant may request $100,000 in the first year and $175,000 in the second year. The request should be tailored to the needs of the project. Normally, no more than $200,000 may be requested in any single year.
- Eligible organizations include domestic and foreign, for-profit and non-profit organizations, public and private, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of State and local governments, and eligible agencies of the Federal government. Racial/ethnic minority individuals, women, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply as Principal Investigators. Particularly encouraged are applications from investigators at minority institutions, from new investigators, and from investigators new to diabetes and digestive and kidney diseases.
- Eligible principal investigators are any individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research.
- Each investigator may submit more than one application provided that the applications are substantively different from each other.
