Pathway to Stop Diabetes Research Awards – Open Call for Nominations

Posted on February 5, 2014 at 4:44pm

Pathway to Stop Diabetes Research Awards
Call for Nominations—Now Open!

Pathway is a bold initiative to radically transform diabetes research. Our vision is simple yet revolutionary: find a new generation of brilliant scientists at the peak of their creativity and equip them with the freedom, autonomy and financial and professional resources to set them on the road to breakthrough discoveries.

Pathway awards will support exceptional, creative scientists; individuals who are early in their diabetes research careers, or who are currently in other disciplines, but are interested in applying their expertise to diabetes research for the first time.

Pathway will provide the means to conduct transformative science, including:

  • Substantial, flexible financial support of $1.625M over 5 to 7 years
  • Scientific and career mentoring from distinguished leaders
  • Networks for collaboration and communication

Pathway awards are by institutional nomination only. Nominations for individuals proposing innovative and transformational basic, clinical, translational, epidemiological or health services research relevant to any type of diabetes, diabetes-related disease state or complication are welcomed. Nominations of candidates in diverse disciplines, from medicine, biology and chemistry to engineering, mathematics and physics, are encouraged.

To learn more about the available grant opportunities, and for nomination materials, please go to www.diabetes.org/pathway.

Application Deadline is July 1, 2014
