The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is inviting applications for Diabetes Center grants (P30 and P60 funding mechanisms) to support research in diabetes mellitus and its complications, and in related areas of endocrinology and metabolism. The mission of the Diabetes Centers is to serve as a key component of the NIDDK-supported research effort to develop new therapies and improve the health of Americans with diabetes and related endocrine and metabolic disorders. The Centers promote new discoveries and enhance scientific progress through support of cutting-edge basic and clinical research related to the etiology and complications of diabetes, with the goal of rapidly translating research findings into novel strategies for the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes and related conditions. To accomplish this mission, the Diabetes Centers:

  • create an environment that supports important and innovative research;
  • raise awareness and interest in fundamental and clinical diabetes research at their institutions and locally, regionally, and nationally;
  • enhance diabetes research education and training opportunities for patients, students, scientists, and clinicians;
  • attract and retain new and young investigators;
  • provide core services that leverage funding and unique expertise;
  • foster interdisciplinary collaborations, especially in the emerging areas of research, to catalyze new ideas and scientific approaches; and
  • promote the translation of scientific discoveries from bench to bedside to community to improve public health.
