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: Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) (PD(s)/PI(s)) is invited to work with his/her organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.
Because a Diabetes Research Center has a large and complex administrative structure, the Project Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) must have strong leadership abilities and demonstrated proficiency in managing large, multi-component programs. The Diabetes 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).
