Competitive Collaborative Projects for Human Islet Biology (UC4)

This Funding Opportunity Announcement solicits applications for collaborative research projects that will enhance the goals of the Human Islet Research Network (HIRN; www.hirnetwork.org). The HIRN is a collaborative program consisting of multiple related but distinct research consortia focused around two common goals: increasing our understanding of how human beta cells are lost in Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), and finding innovative strategies to protect or replace functional beta cell mass in diabetic patients. Applicants to this FOA will be expected to lend unique perspectives and novel approaches to the network, and will be expected to pursue experiments that will be consistent with HIRN's continuing emphasis on studies that elucidate key aspects of human biology and physiology.
