Funding Programs

The Diabetic Complications Consortium provide access to multiple funding mechanisms to enhance research activities that use the DiaComp infrastructure. These funding programs are open to the public and submissions are variable based on the program. This page provides information regarding the current funding programs available and will be updated regularly to reflect any changes or additions.

There is strong evidence that diabetic complications are linked via dysregulation of common pathways. The Diabetic Complications Consortium (DiaComp) promotes communication and collaboration between research communities investigating similar pathologic mechanisms in different organs by organizing an annual scientific meeting and funding new basic and translational research activities.

Applications for the Pilot & Feasibility Funding Program will only be accepted beginning January 01, 2018 through June 11, 2018 calendar year.
This year the DiaComp program will be partnering with the NIDDK Diabetes Research Centers to support summer research experiences for first- and second-year medical students as part of the NIDDK Medical Student Research Program in Diabetes. (http://medicalstudentdiabetesresearch.org/) This program offers first- and second-year medical students the opportunity to conduct mentored research in diabetes and diabetic complications at one of the NIDDK-funded Diabetes Research centers. (http://diabetescenters.org/centers) DiaComp students also participate in a core curriculum of seminars on research approaches as well as a variety of clinical and research topics in diabetes and diabetic complications. At the conclusion of the summer, each student presents his/her work at the NIDDK Medical Student Research Program research symposium, which provides a venue for students to meet, share their research, and to learn about career pathways and opportunities in NIDDK-related professions.

Students: applications for the 2017 summer program are now CLOSED. The Summer Student Opportunities Program will re-open in late Fall 2017.
Diabetic foot ulcers are the most common cause of non-traumatic lower leg amputation in the United States. Despite efforts to prevent and treat foot ulcers, each year about 70,000 Americans with diabetes will lose part of their lower extremity because a foot ulcer becomes infected or does not heal. An obstacle to the development of therapies is the paucity of validated biomarkers that assess healing, infection, and recurrence risk, and validated outcomes that measure patient satisfaction and quality of life. In addition, systematic reviews of clinical studies on the prevention and management of diabetic foot ulcers consistently point to the urgent need for clinical trials with standardized definitions, outcomes, biomarkers, and protocols that will enable a thorough evaluation of treatments and comparison of results across trials.

This program supports high-quality Conferences and Scientific Meetings that feature sessions or speakers that are directly relevant to diabetic complications and promote communication and collaboration between research communities investigating similar pathologic mechanisms in different end organs of complications.

Applications for the Conference Support Funding Program will only be accepted beginning January 01, 0001 through January 01, 0001 calendar year.
