The major functions of this administrative division are grant and contract review and management. In addition, the DEA maintains general support for the National Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases Advisory Council.
Promotes trans-NIH coordination and collaboration but has no grant-awarding authority. In November 1993, the NIDDK's leadership in nutrition research was formalized by the transfer of the Division of Nutrition Research Coordination (DNRC) from the OD, NIH to the OD, NIDDK, consistent with the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993. The DNRC advises the NIH Director and others on nutrition research issues and works with the NIH organizational components to coordinate trans-NIH nutrition and research training initiatives. In addition to its coordinating function, the Division also performs scientific coding of NIH nutrition-related grants for analytic and reporting purposes.
