Center for Identification and Study of Individuals with Atypical Diabetes Mellitus (U54)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for a Center for Identification and Study of Individuals with Atypical Diabetes Mellitus (U54). The purpose of this Center is to: foster the study of individuals with rare/atypical forms of diabetes mellitus; identify and analyze phenotypic and genotypic defects that may provide insights into more common, heterogeneous forms of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in the general population; and develop a community resource to advance research in this area through the collection and dissemination of data and samples for access by the broad research community. To achieve this goal, the Center should support the following primary research endeavors: (1) develop a process for identifying and studying individuals/families with rare and uncharacterized forms of diabetes and (2) create and manage a database and biospecimen repository of rare/atypical forms of diabetes for use by the broader research community in future analyses.
