Executive Summary

The KUH division of the NIDDK aims to reshape and refocus its Institutional Training Award (T32) Program. The new program will have fewer, larger awards designed to cultivate a vibrant and dynamic network of people and resources across an entire institution to engage, recruit, prepare and sustain the next generation of KUH researchers. Each institution may apply for a single award that will have at least 5 highly competitive trainee slots to support protected research and career development activities. Importantly, each award is also expected to coordinate several other diverse training activities across the institution.
