The UAB Center for the Study of Community Health (CSCH), one of 26 Prevention Research Centers (PRCs) designated nationally by CDC, announces the 2016 Community Health Scholars pilot grant program, an initiative to encourage community-based participatory research (CBPR) by UAB faculty.
The pilot and feasibility program is intended to provide seed support for new and innovative research projects directed at basic, biochemical, translational, clinical, and community-based research questions that broadly pertain to diabetes, diabetes complications, and cardiometabolic disease. Pilot projects should be designed to generate sufficient data as the basis for further extramural funding (e.g., R01 applications) in order to substantially pursue and expand the line of investigation.
The UAB Comprehensive Diabetes Center (UCDC) would like to invite faculty to submit applications for this year’s Seed Funding program focusing on the interplay between diabetes and other chronic diseases.
Research Focus: Diabetes has become a widespread chronic disease, but with reasonably good life expectancy. Similarly, survival of many other chronic diseases has improved dramatically in recent years resulting in more patients suffering from diabetes as well as other health issues. However, very little is known about the crosstalk between diabetes and other chronic diseases. The purpose of this award is therefore to allow UAB faculty to initiate novel basic research into the role diabetes plays in other disease states, how other diseases may affect diabetes and what common pathways and targets may exist. Please note that the intent of this award is to support basic science projects. It is expected that provided seed funding will be utilized to obtain sufficient data to apply for significant extramural funding.
