NIH Grant Funding for Causes and Consequences of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (R01)
Deadline: Mar. 20, 2012
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications for research project grants to study the causes and consequences of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (CFRD). CFRD is one of the most common complications of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) that occurs in almost half the patients with Cystic Fibrosis as they age. CF patients with CFRD have a higher morbidity and mortality than those who do not develop CFRD. It is not currently known why some patients develop CFRD although some genetic variants have been implicated. The mechanisms for the steeper decline in lung disease in patients with CFRD are also not understood. The NIDDK invites applications that study the etiology of CFRD in humans and animal models, as well as studies to understand the mechanisms for the increased morbidity in patients with CFRD.
