Subject: American Diabetes Association Pathway to Stop Diabetes
Nominations are due at the Graduate School on Tuesday, April 30; Deadline for internal competition is Friday, May 10.
Pathway invites institutional nominations for individuals who have distinguished themselves as promising investigators with a high likelihood of making seminal contributions in diabetes research.
Diabetes Research Career Initiator for individuals transitioning from mentored
training to independence. This two-phased award is designed to support the transition from mentored training to independent research faculty. Eligible applicants must currently be in research training positions (post-doctoral fellow, research fellowship) and have no more than seven years of training following terminal doctoral degree. Phase 1 provides up to two years of support for mentored training at a maximum of $100,000 per year (including 10% indirect costs). Phase 2 provides up to five years of support for independent research at a maximum of $325,000 per year (including 30% indirect costs).
Diabetes Research Accelerator for early-career diabetes researchers or established investigators changing their focus to diabetes research. Awards are available to individuals with established records of independent productivity in research, in two distinct categories:
Early Investigator: Early-career diabetes investigators proposing innovative and ambitious diabetes-related research programs. Applicants must hold faculty positions and have demonstrated independent productivity in diabetes research. Applicants may currently hold independent NIH funding (K or R awards, including an initial R01) but must not have applied for, or received, an R01 renewal or a second R01 award.
Established Investigator New to Diabetes Research: Established investigators with exceptional productivity in fields other than diabetes research who would like to apply their expertise to innovative diabetes-related research topics. Applicants must hold faculty positions and have demonstrated independent productivity. Applicants cannot have previously received national grant support in diabetes research.
Awards provide five years of research support at a maximum of $325,000 per year including indirect costs.
See above for eligibility. The number of proposals UW–Madison may submit is limited to one in total.
