National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), (http://www.niddk.nih.gov)
The NIDDK has recently awarded a contract establishing a rodent model testing program to assist in development of therapeutic interventions for the prevention or reversal of complications of type 1 diabetes. The contract provides independent investigators with access to the resources and expertise required to evaluate agents for preclinical therapeutic efficacy in rodent models. NIDDK invites scientists to submit information describing promising new therapeutics or intervention strategies that may require further testing in rodent models prior to moving forward for evaluation in patients with diabetic complications.
Investigators recommending agents for testing (“sponsors”) should provide the following information:
It is important to emphasize that this program is not a funding opportunity, and provides support solely for testing promising agents in the contractor’s facility.
Applications will be accepted at any time, but recommended target submission dates for expeditious review are October 30th, 2007 and February 29, 2008.
Requests will be reviewed for scientific merit by an NIDDK appointed special review panel. Acceptance into the program will be based on scientific merit, programmatic relevance, perceived translational potential and availability of resources. Format for applications and additional information can be found by navigating from the T1D-RAID web page, (http://www.niddk.nih.gov/fund/diabetesspecialfunds/T1D-RAID/ ).
