Limited Submission Funding Opportunity for Texas A&M Faculty and PIs


Career Development Programs in Diabetes Research for Pediatric Endocrinologists (K12)


Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.


PI Eligibility:  The PD/PI should be an established investigator in the scientific area in which the application is targeted and capable of providing both administrative and scientific leadership to the development and implementation of the proposed program.  It is expected that the PD/PI will be a pediatric endocrinologist with a strong record in biomedical research and mentoring.  If the PD/PI is not a pediatric diabetologist, a senior investigator with expertise in pediatric diabetes research must be included as a part of the leadership in the K12 program.  The PD/PI will be expected to monitor and assess the program and submit all documents and reports as required.  The PD/PI at the institution will be responsible for the appointment of the K12 scholars and for the overall direction, management and administration of the program.  In addition to the day to day administration of the program, the PD/PI will also be responsible for appointing members of the Advisory Committee and using their recommendations to determine the appropriate allotment of funds for research and career development.


The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).


Proposal Limit: 1
