The NIDDK invites Cooperative Agreement applications for a limited competition from the two Clinical Coordinating Centers (CCC), the Data Coordinating Center (DCC) and the Central Biochemistry Laboratory (CBL) already involved in The Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD) consortium. The Clinical Centers will continue to evaluate enrolled subjects, recruit new subjects, and continue to work together cooperatively with the existing DCC and CBL of the study as a Consortium. Participant evaluations in some domains will be expanded, and follow-up will extend beyond the onset of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).
Please submit a two-page letter of intent with a list of all anticipated investigators, description of proposed aims and approach, and Biosketch of the PI by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 PM Thursday, October 11, 2012. Full applications are due to the sponsor 11/14/12 so you will need to have your proposal to the Office of Sponsored Programs by 11/7/12 for processing if given the go ahead by the review committee.
Investigators who identify a grant, award or fellowship program that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an Institution should immediately contact their Chairperson, Associate Dean for Research (or Dean, if no ADR) and the Office of Research (see below) if they intend to prepare a response. Failure to do so, or to meet the deadlines for submission of pre-proposal, will preclude submission of the application through the Office of Sponsored Programs.
For general inquiries, or to request a listing of a limited submission opportunity that should be but is not already listed, please email us at email@example.com.
