New Investigator Pilot Program in Bioinformatics
This pilot program, through the NIDDK Information Network (dkNET), is designed to encourage new investigators to apply innovative bioinformatics approaches to important research problems in Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases (DEMD). The dkNET New Investigator Pilot Program is designed to: (i) facilitate the ability of Early Stage and New Investigators with computational and bioinformatics expertise to pursue research questions in DEMD, or (ii) allow Early Stage and New PIs currently pursuing DEMD-related research to explore incorporating computational, statistical, and/or bioinformatics approaches into their research projects.
The mission of the Human Islet Research Network (HIRN) is to
better understand how human beta cells are lost in
Type 1 Diabetes and to find innovative strategies to protect or
replace functional beta cell mass in diabetic patients.
