Nutrition Obesity Research Centers

http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-DK-16-006.html

 

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.

 

Institutional Eligibility:  Successful Nutrition Obesity Research Center applications require an existing program of excellence in biomedical research in the area of nutrition and/or obesity, its complications, and related research. To justify Center support, the Nutrition Obesity Research Center must serve a large research base of NIDDK-funded investigators pursuing research activities in Center topic areas, as well as nutrition/obesity investigators with other sources of peer-reviewed support.

 

PI Eligibility:  Because a Nutrition Obesity Research Center has a large and complex administrative structure, the PD/PI must have strong leadership abilities and demonstrated proficiency in managing large, multi-component programs. The Nutrition Obesity Research Center PD(s)/PI(s) must also be willing to participate in annual meetings of the Center Directors.   

 

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

 

Proposal Limit: 1

 

Summary:  This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites applications from institutions/organizations that propose to establish core centers that are part of an integrated and existing program of nutrition and/or obesity research. The Nutrition Obesity Research Centers (NORC) program is designed to support and enhance the national research effort in nutrition and obesity.  NORCs support three primary research-related activities:  Research Core services, a Pilot and Feasibility (P and F) program, and an Enrichment program.  All activities pursued by Nutrition Obesity Research Centers are designed to enhance the efficiency, productivity, effectiveness and multidisciplinary nature of research in nutrition and obesity.  The NIDDK Nutrition Obesity Research Centers program consists of 12 Centers, each located at outstanding research institutions with documented programs of excellence in nutrition and/or obesity research.
