Deadline: 2/1/2019
Funding Entity: LA CaTS
Max. Award: $180,000.00
Contact: info@lacats.org

The LA CaTS Center is requesting applications for multi-institutional, multi-investigator awards focused on diabetes. The goal is to develop collaborative research that results in highly significant preliminary data that can be used to compete for federal grants (e.g., R01) related to diabetes and associated complications. We encourage applications related to sex differences in diabetes and related complications as well as health disparities in populations disproportionately affected by diabetes. This effort is undertaken as a first step towards the development of a new Diabetes Research Center grant in Louisiana. Total available funding for this initiative is $180,000 for one year. This sum will allow the funding of one large or two smaller awards.
