NIDDK Director's Update

Winter Update 2013

Director's Note

At NIDDK, we strive to provide diverse information to diverse audiences – news on funding opportunities for scientists, biographies of our investigators and their research for potential collaborators or fellows, research news for patients and reporters, reputable health information for the public and more. And while our website did well on some of these fronts, it didn’t make the grade on others.
If you’ve been to the NIDDK website in the last few years, you may have gotten a request for your feedback. We’ve listened, and an improved website is the result.
On Dec. 16, we unveiled the work of more than two years of planning across the institute in a refreshed website we hope will better meet our audiences’ needs, now and in the future. Our grant opportunities are easier to find and search. Our research training programs are displayed to help a new generation of researchers take the next step in their careers.  Our data and sample repositories are more readily available in our list of research resources, the better to amplify the return on investments we’ve made in many important studies. More »​​​​​
