This program is designed to support primarily early-stage investigators (ESIs), but also established investigators in other fields to conduct research in diabetes, obesity and related cardiometabolic disorders. The program supports the generation of new ideas, approaches, and areas of inquiry. Proposals that investigate health disparities related to diabetes and obesity, and these areas as they relate to COVID-19, are encouraged.

  1. To conduct annual P&F grant competitions.
  2. To increase P&F awardee and early-stage investigator use of CDTR resources (Core services and Enrichment programming).
  3. To objectively evaluate P&F awardee progress.
  4. To increase P&F applications from URiM investigators and evaluate relevant funding metrics
