Executive Summary

The purpose of the NIDDK Diversity Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Awards (F99/K00) is to recruit exceptional graduate students from underrepresented backgrounds to pursue postdoctoral training focused on NIDDK research mission areas. Talented graduate students from all disciplines, especially those not currently in NIDDK research areas, are encouraged to apply to this opportunity. This program is committed to promoting and supporting diversity and working in collaboration with existing NIDDK pathway programs designed to increase the diversity of the NIDDK biomedical research workforce.
