Notice of Special Interest: Administrative Supplements to Support Emerging Physician-Scientists to Develop Research Expertise in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases

The purpose of the NIDDK’s Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases (DDEMD) Administrative Supplement Program is to enable additional clinical perspectives to be brought to on-going research projects within the Division’s mission and to enhance the research expertise of selected physicians. The program will provide supplementary funds to support advanced research opportunities for exceptional emerging physician-scientists (hereafter, “candidates”) holding the MD or equivalent or MD/PhD degrees, and who are early in their research careers.

The supplement is intended to allow candidates to expand their research experience to help them transition beyond their clinical training to the next stage of their research careers as physician-scientists.

Administrative supplements must support work within the scope of a currently funded basic and/or clinical DDEMD research project. PIs of projects focused on type 1 diabetes are highly encouraged to apply given the limited numbers of new MD researchers entering this area. All applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss potential requests with the NIDDK DDEMD program director of the award for which they wish to submit a supplement application.
