Limited Competition for Continuation of the Integrated Islet Distribution Program (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites one application from the Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) of the current Integrated Islet Distribution Program (IIDP) to renew the program and maintain support for its continuing mission to provide the scientific community with important islet resources for diabetes research. The IIDP facilitates the distribution of human islets to biomedical researchers by establishing partnerships with qualified islet isolation facilities to prepare and distribute human islets. The program manages an application process to establish investigator eligibility to receive islet shipments, informs investigators of islet availability, manages a cost recovery system through fees collected from islet recipients, and oversees standardized phenotypic and genotypic analyses of islet preparations distributed throughout the IIDP network. Human islets remain an essential resource for diabetes research to advance our understanding of human islet cell biology, and to promote the development of new therapies for the prevention and treatment of diabetes.
