Six NIH Institutes To Sponsor Diabetes Proteomics Grant

NEW YORK, Oct. 24 (GenomeWeb News) - Six sponsoring NIH institutes released a Request for Applications today entitled "Proteomics and Metabolomics in Type 1 Diabetes and Its Complications." The institutes have committed approximately $3 million in FY 2004 to fund six to 12 grants in response to the RFA.

 

Salvatore Sechi, director of proteomics programs at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, announced at the Human Proteome Organization meeting in Montreal earlier this month that the NIDDK would be releasing several RFAs supporting proteomics research, including this one, GenomeWeb News' sister publication ProteoMonitor reported on Oct. 17.
