As we begin a new year, the UAB Comprehensive Diabetes Center has collated key conference and grant submission dates for 2023.

Conferences are an opportunity for faculty, staff, and trainees to extend their professional network, continue learning, and stay up to date with trending research areas. For trainees that intend to present their research, travel awards are often available.

There are several diabetes research funding opportunities across grant agencies as well as foundations and associations. The information below is not an exhaustive list, and diabetes researchers are still encouraged to search beyond these high-level submission dates.
