Release Date:  January 9, 2002

NOTICE:  NOT-DK-02-002

National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
 (http://www.niddk.nih.gov/)

The purpose of this Notice is to clarify a statement that was included 
within the SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS section of RFA-DK-02-007.  The 
following statement is deleted: "At least 50 percent of the already 
funded research base in a new application must be supported by the 
NIDDK.  In competing continuation applications the percent may be less 
than 50 percent due to, for example, a growing research base of 
investigators entering digestive diseases from other fields.  The 
initial review group will determine the significance of the research 
base."   The above statement should be replaced with:  "At least 50 
percent of the already funded research base identified within the 
application must be supported by peer-reviewed federal sources.  The 
initial review group will determine the significance of the research 
base."

All other aspects of the RFA remain unchanged.
