2021 MCDTR Pilot and Feasibility Grant Program

Application Due Date: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 (11:59 PM)

This Pilot and Feasibility (P/F) Grant Program is sponsored by the Michigan Center for Diabetes Translational Research (MCDTR).  Its purpose is to promote research in diabetes by new and established investigators at the University of Michigan and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The ultimate goal of the program is to accelerate the pace of research and enable awardees to generate sufficient preliminary data for successful applications for major research funding from the NIH or other national granting agency.

Michigan Diabetes Research Center (MDRC) Mini Pilot/Feasibility Grant Program

The purpose of the MDRC Mini Pilot/Feasibility (P/F) Grant Program is to promote the diabetes-related research of MDRC members at the University of Michigan by funding the use of eligible services provided by MDRC cores to generate new reagents or data in support of a specific grant application or manuscript, or to initiate a new research direction. A second priority of the program is to encourage the use of MDRC core services by MDRC members who have not used them previously.
