NIDDK Catalyst Award (RFA-DK-23-014)

The NIDDK Catalyst Award is designed to complement NIDDK’s traditional, investigator-initiated grant programs by supporting individual scientists who propose pioneering and transformational studies in topic areas of interest to NIDDK’s Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases, and to NIDDK’s Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition. Applications should be focused on major scientific challenges and have the potential to produce an unusually high impact on diseases and conditions that are central to the mission of these two divisions within NIDDK. To be considered responsive to this initiative, the proposed research should reflect new and novel scientific directions that are distinct from concepts and approaches being pursued in the investigator’s research program or elsewhere.
