The Johns Hopkins University-University of Maryland Diabetes Research Center Pilot and Feasibility (P&F) Program provides funding support towards the development of preliminary data sufficient for the application of a research grant, or towards the testing of an innovative hypothesis which may have important implications or yield significant results for diabetes-related research.

The P&F grant applications are restricted to center members, who are new investigators without NIH or other federal grant funding, established investigators testing an innovative hypothesis in diabetes. The applications are reviewed by internal and external faculty according to the National Institutes of Health review guidelines. The P&F awards are for one year and their availability depends on funding from NIDDK. A second year of support may be possible after review of progress in the first year and an application for continued support.

The P&F awardees are required to present their research during the annual Diabetes Research Center Symposium.

The application package and instructions can be downloaded from the Administrative following the announcement for P&F submissions.
