Translational Research: Disease Biology

NIDDK’s extramural research programs provide funding for investigator-initiated studies of both normal and pathophysiological biology. While the majority of this research contributes to our overall understanding of health and disease, individual research projects are not necessarily directly focused on the discovery and development of new therapeutics.

NIDDK and NIH Funding Opportunities

See NIDDK Current Funding Opportunities or the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts for more information on active funding opportunities to support basic research on disease biology.
