The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) invites applications for George M. O'Brien Kidney Research Core Centers to support both basic and clinical research on kidney disease. Core Centers should provide shared institutional and national resources to facilitate basic and clinical research on kidney disease and improve the effectiveness of translating insights from basic biology to clinical practice. The centers will also support pilot and feasibility studies to develop and test innovative approaches to therapy.

The goal of these O'Brien Research Core Centers is to provide resources for communication and collaboration between basic and clinical researchers in the field of kidney disease. Research with translational potential is strongly encouraged. Core Centers will provide shared resources to enhance the efficiency of research and foster collaborations within and among institutions with strong existing bases of kidney disease research. Centers may be located in a single institution or in multiple institutions with complementary research bases.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 7, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include a summary of the proposed center and the resources it would provide.
