New Paradigms in Tissue Communication-from mediators to metabolic function (RC2 Clinical Trials Optional)
NIDDK utilizes High Impact, Interdisciplinary Science (RC2) grants to support projects that will lay the foundation for new fields of investigation within the mission of NIDDK. The RC2 is envisioned to use an interdisciplinary approach to generate a research resource and/or foster discovery-based or hypothesis-generating science that can have a significant impact on the broader scientific community.
This targeted FOA specifically seeks to generate scientific advancements that are focused on identifying new signals and regulatory networks that mediate metabolic cross talks within and between organs that play a role in the development of diabetes and obesity. The interdisciplinary approaches proposed should be designed to foster novel synergies that will accelerate conceptual and technical breakthroughs in science related to metabolic tissue communication.
