NIDDK Funding Opportunity

U54 Specialized Center Cooperative Agreement

NIDDK Cooperative Hematology Specialized Core Centers (U54)

​The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement is to invite U54 grant applications for Cooperative Specialized Hematology Core Centers.  The NIDDK Hematology Centers Program is designed to increase resource sharing and collaboration in the national multi-disciplinary research effort to combat nonmalignant hematologic diseases.  In addition, it will improve cost-effectiveness of preparing critical reagents, maintaining state-of-the-art resources or running multi-step molecular biologic assays.  Each Center will support a minimum of three Cores, a Pilot and Feasibility (PNF) program, and an Enrichment program.  By providing state-of-the-art equipment, resources and expertise, the program will serve as a national resource for career development of scientists just beginning their careers in the field of nonmalignant hematology research.  Funded Centers will cooperate with the NIDDK to facilitate research collaborations and interactions within and among Centers and with the larger research community.
