James F. Hyde, Ph.D.

Program Director, Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolic Diseases

Current Responsibilities & Activities

I am program director for the Career Development (“K”) awards, Neurobiology of Obesity, and Diabetes Research Centers programs.  The Career Development awards support individuals with a Ph.D., M.D., or an equivalent degree to conduct research on diabetes, endocrinology, and metabolic diseases.  In conjunction with this program, I also administer a small grant program for K01/K08/K23 recipients (R03).  The NIDDK’s Diabetes Research Centers program (http://www.diabetescenters.org) supports innovative research and interdisciplinary collaboration to promote the translation of basic science into public health improvements.  I also coordinate the NIH Loan Repayment program for the Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolic Diseases.

In addition to my work for the Institute, I currently am a member of the Research Policy Committee of the American Diabetes Association.
