Director's Note

At NIDDK, we seek to nurture the most promising scientific talent from across our vast nation, and as you’ll see in this issue, we do so in myriad ways.

These programs draw the brightest talent from across the country and in sometimes overlooked places—from rural Tennessee to Alaska and the Pacific Islands—with the aim of inspiring young people to choose careers in health research.

As graduate students narrow their focus, we offer funding in the form of training awards and fellowships to help them explore research opportunities and contribute to studies within our disease mission. For new investigators, early career awards can provide protected time for research. Read more
