Key Dates
Release Date:  January 29, 2009

Issued by
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), (

This notice is to inform the applicant community that investigators from the NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) are included in the list of eligible applicants in Section III.1: Eligibility Information and are eligible to participate in the NIDDK RFA-DK-09-004 – Multiethnic Study of Type 2 Diabetes Genes (

The NIDDK is seeking a broad range of ethnically diverse studies and recognizes that potentially eligible and meritorious studies may be planned or ongoing within the IRP.  There have been many collaborations between extramural and intramural scientists which have led to significant advances in identifying genes for type 2 diabetes and this cooperative agreement will continue to foster these extramural/intramural collaborations.

To ensure that all projects for this RFA are reviewed in a comparable manner, the NIDDK will allow intramural investigators to submit an application for resources required to participate in the program.  The requests from Intramural scientists will be submitted using the format of PHS 398 application kit (  The NIH Intramural applications will be reviewed separately but they will be assessed using the same review criteria, procedures, and peer review group members as used for the extramural applications.

The requests by intramural scientists will be limited to the incremental costs required for participation.  As such these requests will not include any salary and related fringe benefits for career, career conditional or other Federal employees (civilian or uniform service) with permanent appointments under existing position ceilings or any costs related to administrative or facilities support.

Should an extramural application include collaboration with an intramural scientist, the same rules described above apply.

If selected, NIH intramural scientists will participate in this U01 as Principal Investigators in accord with the Cooperative Agreement Terms and Conditions of the Award provided in the RFA.  All investigators are expected to comply with established resource sharing policies.

Intramural scientists will not submit applications to this RFA through the Center for Scientific Review.  Intramural scientist must submit 3 copies of their application to:
